Mr. Speaker, we dealt with that during the last session of Parliament. We introduced Bill C-37, which received the support of all opposition parties and eliminated the discrimination previously found in the Citizenship Act.
This is what Don Chapman, spokesperson for Lost Canadians, had to say about it:
“This ends today”, the introduction of that bill, “140 years of discrimination against women and children on Canadian citizenship”.
I should add that, when the Liberals were in power, they did nothing to resolve the lost Canadians issue. They supported the solution set out in the bill during the last session of Parliament.
