Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his wonderful speech.
I have a comment related to a question from my colleague from Hochelaga.
She talked about how important public research is. As we all know, the Conservative government has cut 700 research positions at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada since 2013.
I would like my colleague to comment on what kind of message the government's decision to cut 700 research and innovation positions sends about the importance of public research in Canada and the respect it deserves.
