Mr. Speaker, as the hon. member knows, the Canadian Forces are not participating in the health care system with the provinces.
We get our health care where we can in conjunction with the needs for those services. We acquire them from the public health care system, but we do use private facilities when necessary to meet our unique occupational needs.
We have done that and we will continue to do that as we are not a part of the health care system of this country. We have unique characteristics and unique needs.
