Mr. Speaker, I thank the member for his question and for the work that he does in Pontiac.
First of all, I would like to offer my sincere condolences to the family of Mike Gagnon, who was swept away by flood waters in the Gaspé. Our hearts go out them.
Families and their homes are always the top priority in these types of situations. All those who are affected by the flooding and who will not be able to file their tax return or pay their taxes on time are encouraged to submit a request for taxpayer relief to the Canada Revenue Agency, which will be very open to all these requests.
On behalf of our government, I applaud the first responders and volunteers who continue to assist flood victims.
