Mr. Speaker, we start in a very deep hole. After 13 years of Liberal inaction, we start with very long lineups. We have 800,000 people in that backlog. That is unacceptable. It is terrible what the former Liberal government did. We are working on it. I can guarantee we will make serious progress to help reunite people with their families.
