Mr. Speaker, as the hon. member has pointed out, it is an advisory board which I appointed because I want the Canadian forces to be able to better reflect the population which exists today.
I want to make sure that people from all parts of Canada and from all socio-economic groups have an opportunity to be part of this great national institution.
The board has come up with some suggestions which I think are worthwhile. We are looking at them right now. I think we can increase the numbers of people, reach out to them, and do it without quotas and without lowering any of our standards.
It is important to reach out to these people and be inclusive in terms of the Canadian forces.
