Madam Speaker, the government has already stated its position on this. We have stated our commitment to be there over the long term to fund the health care system with the provinces. We have already stated our commitment to be there to take part in the changes necessary in the delivery of services in order to support the provinces in introducing the necessary reforms.
I cited Bernard Landry, who said himself a few days ago that it is a question not just of more money but also of how our health care system is run.
Responsibility for the delivery of services is in the hands of the provinces, and the Government of Canada also has a role to play in co-ordinating the changes and supporting the provinces in their efforts.
In reply to the questions put by the hon. member for Jonquière, we have already stated our intention to honour our responsibilities in this regard.
