Mr. Speaker, first, our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the disaster.
I was pleased to announce today that there would be a matching fund. We stepped up very fast in this situation with an initial $5 million in humanitarian aid. Then today I am officially announcing that there will be a matching fund.
Canadians should be proud of that. They are generous and they will be able to participate with the government to ensure we help the Nepalese to recover.
