Mr. Speaker, the NDP has clearly not done its homework with regard to language of work.
Our government is committed to promoting and protecting the French language in Canada. I have the privilege of announcing today in the House that our government is going to set up a consultative committee that will be responsible for determining whether a problem exists with regard to the French language in federally regulated private businesses.
French is an integral part of our history, our identity and our daily lives. French is Canada's founding language, and our Conservative government is very proud of that.
