Mr. Speaker, I would like to respond to my colleague's question.
I have two beautiful boys myself, and it is true that boys probably eat more than girls. Perhaps we could work together to corroborate that information. However, all kidding aside, we are talking about an important issue here.
Although my two children were born into a common-law relationship, I am concerned about this issue.
If I understand correctly, this bill pertains to married couples. Does my colleague think that, when this bill is sent to committee, protections should be added for children born into common-law relationships? More and more children in Canada are being born to parents who are not married but who are in common-law relationships.
I would like to know what my colleague thinks about that.
