Mr. Speaker, when awarded the official languages portfolio, the Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs pledged to produce a plan to support the development of minority communities by making services in their language more accessible.
But according to the latest census data, the percentage of francophones outside Quebec continues to decrease and nothing can be done about it. Now close to 18 months have passed since the minister was assigned the task of formulating a new action plan to strengthen the official languages program.
What is he waiting for to produce this plan? This is a matter of the utmost urgency.
