Mr. Speaker, I want to thank my colleague from Marc-Aurèle-Fortin for his support of the reservists.
Last week, I was in Laval to announce changes to the reserve force pay. The reservists will now be paid the same as the regular force for the valuable work they do. This important initiative, laid out in our defence policy “Strong, Secure, Engaged”, is a clear demonstration of how we value the dedication of all members of the Canadian Armed Forces.
Our reservists make us proud.
