Mr. Speaker, I respect what my colleague opposite said. We know one thing for sure though: during Mr. Gauthier's extradition from Oman to Dubai, there was a 24-hour period during which there was no news. Nobody knew where he was.
Now his family is desperate. Let me reiterate that this has been going on for some time. We must support his family. That is extremely important.
Can the government promise me that it will take the necessary measures as soon as possible and implement an action plan to bring André Gauthier back home?
I would also like to know if the government is in a position to initiate good negotiations with the United Arab Emirates.
