Mr. Speaker, my colleague's comments were heartfelt and they did move me today.
I am a teacher by training, so listening to the member talk about the value of education is very important to me. I am also a mother, so thinking about what happened to children and their parents with residential schools is very important to me. I shudder at what they have gone through.
This week in Alberta, there were some leaked curriculum documents in which the education on residential schools was pulled from the curriculum. At a time when we all need to be doing more to ensure Canadians know about what happened with residential schools, it is being taken out of our curriculum in Alberta.
Remembering history is important, acknowledging harm done is important and recognizing what was done to indigenous peoples is important.
I wonder if the member could let us know if he will support the expedited passage of the bill to the Senate.
