Mr. Speaker, I have a petition in which the petitioners are calling upon the federal government to preserve and enforce the Canada Health Act and the foundation of medicare in every province and region of Canada. They want the government to maintain the five principles of medicare.
The petitioners call upon Parliament to enshrine the Canada Health Act and the five principles of medicare in the Canadian Constitution. They are hoping that this will guarantee national standards of quality publicly-funded health care for every Canadian citizen as a right. The petitioners and I look forward to the answer from the minister.
