Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech.
I see this bill as a step in the right direction towards reconciliation, but more needs to be done.
Earlier I asked the Minister of Canadian Heritage whether he agreed that we need to accept and implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and he said he agreed. When my colleague asked a question about whether the Indian Act should be amended and quickly, the minister would not commit to anything.
Does my colleague think that that legislation is racist and must be amended immediately?
