Mr. Speaker, I want to congratulate the minister on his first speech in the House.
That being said, this government's position on the issue of pay equity completely abandons women in our country.
In 2011, Canadian women are still earning 71¢ for every dollar earned by a man. Even worse is that we know what to do to remedy the situation.
When will this government implement the recommendations of the 2004 pay equity task force?
