Mr. Speaker, I believe the member opposite is well aware of our commitment to overhauling the Fisheries Act.
As I said before, I believe that a simple cut back to the previous version of this legislation would not go far enough to protect the fish and fish habitat.
As I said, the Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans is leading the review of changes to the act. We heard from many groups and stakeholders who appeared before the committee to share their concerns and their vision for the new act.
The Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans' recommendations will be vital to shaping the act's new provisions.
We are working really hard to consult with all Canadians, and look forward to the standing committee's report.
