Mr. Speaker, my hon. colleague knows that the Katimavik program has been one of the most expensive programs the Government of Canada has run. It has a one-third dropout rate.
Katimavik has received up to $21 million per year from taxpayers for over 30 years. It is time it stands on its own two feet.
If Katimavik is so great, so important and so well-run, perhaps the member for Papineau can explain why his own government cut it by over $2 million.
