Mr. Speaker, I believe the hon. member knows very well that Gilles Bernier, a former MP, is in Bucharest as an organizer for the Forum francophone des affaires, a non-governmental organization. He is there as a sherpa or guide for that organization.
Perhaps the hon. member does not like to see NGOs involved in la Francophonie, but we, the government, encourage NGOs to take part in international affairs.
