Mr. Speaker, access to reliable, broadband Internet service is very important in today's economy. It is important for every aspect of daily life.
However, many regions in our country, especially our rural and remote regions, are still lacking good Internet connections. Even my riding, Chicoutimi—Le Fjord, does not have the necessary infrastructure to support broadband Internet service. That is why I was pleased with our government's announcement regarding the connect to innovate program, which will help resolve this problem.
Can our Prime Minister provide the House with an update on this important matter for Canadians?
