Mr. Speaker, I want to commend the hon. member for Calgary Confederation for all the work he has done on this issue. He has been a shining star in our party and on the health committee for a couple of years.
Canadians will be facing a very serious situation in the next eight months.
I was a trustee for 10 years. There has been no dialogue with the government. It has not reached out to the Canadian School Boards Association. It has not reached out to one province or territory with respect to how it is going to deal with 12-year-olds bringing five grams to school in their pockets. The government has not reached out to teachers' associations in this country, and yet we are eight months away.
The Liberals have a simple answer. They are going to throw some money at it and leave the decisions to others. There is no game plan.
I thank the hon. member for Calgary Confederation for bringing this up. Education is first and foremost.
I ask my colleague how he thinks the government should deal with this, other than throwing money at it, which is two years too late.
