Mr. Speaker, let me begin by saying that it was the Liberal government that stopped renewing these agreements in the nineties.
These agreements are going to be completed over the next 20 to 40 years. They will be completed because the mortgages will be paid off. We all know that when mortgages are paid off, subsidies do not need to continue, and we do not keep paying the banks.
We have renewed our investment in affordable housing. The provinces certainly have the flexibility, if after these agreements end, they want to continue to provide other types of subsidies. We are giving them that flexibility.
We are actually getting results for the most vulnerable in our society.
