Mr. Speaker, I want to thank my colleague, the member for New Brunswick Southwest, for her dedicated service to her constituents.
As outlined in our defence policy, our government is committed to employing new and recently enrolled members of the reserves. Last week, I announced our new full-time summer employment program for members of the reserves. Through this initiative, reservists will receive competitive pay and learn valuable military skills.
I would like to also take this opportunity to thank them for their tremendous service to Canada.
