Mr. Speaker, I am still working through his question but I think I can help in sharing the outcome of the polls that have been taken.
In every poll that has been taken, 80% of Canadians have responded that they highly approve of Canada giving aid to the world's poor and helping us reach development goals. I might add that similar polls ask that we be sure that we are achieving aid effectiveness. We developed an excellent policy just a year ago.
My colleague can be assured that we are reaching the goals set out within that policy.
