Mr. Speaker, we are in the midst of a full-blown health crisis.
Now more than ever, people need good quality health care. Now more than ever, it is time to work with Quebec to help our health care providers and protect our seniors. Quebec needs an increase in health transfers to more effectively fight COVID-19, and it has been asking for those transfers.
What was the government's answer? It said that Canada is not Quebec's ATM and that Quebec needs to make do with its equalization payments. Nice collaboration there. I would be embarrassed if that were me.
Quebeckers need better health care and they are calling for health transfers from Ottawa.
What is Ottawa waiting for?
