Mr. Speaker, I want to congratulate my colleague on his new role as official languages critic.
Our two official languages are at the heart of Canada's history and identity. They are a priority for us. With regard to appointments, our government is committed to a process that is rigorous, open, and transparent, and to finding the best candidate for each position.
The role of Commissioner of Official Languages is very important. We are confident that the nominee will have all the required qualifications.
