Madam Speaker, with such limited time to respond, I would suggest that the member take a look at the Health Canada website, where he might be able to find many of the answers.
The member referenced the cutbacks during the nineties. I would like to remind members that it was the Brian Mulroney government that shifted from cash to tax transfers. It would have taken Ottawa out of health care expenditures. It was Jean Chrétien who guaranteed that there would always be health care transfers to provinces. He made that commitment.
We have a progressive government today that wants to meet the needs in health care not only today but well into the future, which includes pharmacare and home care.
