Madam Speaker, I was perhaps speaking of comments I heard from members on the Conservative side here, who were saying that we cannot afford this, where would the money come from, we cannot afford more taxes, etc., whereas the parliamentary budget officer's report clearly says that this would actually save us money.
I am very happy that the health committee is studying this issue. I think that was the result of the NDP member for Vancouver Kingsway initiating those studies. I am proud that he took that action and I am glad that members are studying it. However, the point of the motion is to move from talk to action. We want to set a date. We give a full year to begin negotiations with the provinces to see how we can get this pharmacare system up and running in Canada. It is long past due.
