Mr. Speaker, I would like to take one moment to congratulate the hon. member for Kildonan—St. Paul for the hard work she has done on human trafficking and the passage of that private member's bill yesterday. We applaud the hon. member.
Let me refer to a couple of the items that were in budget 2009 specifically to do with consumer protection. As part of this process, we are planning on improving the disclosure requirements for credit cards, and limiting business practices that are not beneficial to consumers. Rather than going through this long-drawn-out motion from Connecticut today, we have actually stepped forward with what we feel is a much stronger, less regulatory and onerous process than what the NDP would suggest.
With regard to limiting business practices to only those that are good for consumers, we have already put in place the necessary legislation.
If I could speak very quickly to the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada, it is an unknown agency to most of us. It is very beneficial and I would encourage all Canadians to go to the website. There is great information there with which people can help protect themselves.
