Madam Speaker, I thank the member for adding to the consensus that there is a problem and there are things to do.
I have often said in this place that for every complex problem there is a simple solution and it is wrong. What has been proposed today in this motion, and the Liberals and the Bloc will be supporting the NDP motion. It appears, according to the member for Burlington, that the motion makes no sense to either him or his Conservative colleagues.
However, the member raises a point. We have a problem and it is a problem that is a today problem. We do not need a task force, as the Conservatives are saying, to study the problem and then we will start to help people.
What we need to do, and I hope the member would comment, is to reach out now too. There is money in the budget. There is an opportunity for the government to communicate today, not six months from today, not a year from today, but today on how consumers can get the help that they need, to get the process started to stop the problem. They need some assistance.
I know that within a matter of months there will be many families who are going to lose everything they have. That is the tragedy. We cannot be seen to be just sitting here talking about doing studies and task forces, and maybe we will have a bill and deal with this. We really need to communicate with consumers now. I wonder if the member agrees.
