Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his question.
Indeed, call to action number 80 states, “We call upon the federal government, in collaboration with Aboriginal peoples, to establish, as a statutory holiday”. They should not have to ask. As I have always said, there have been discussions with indigenous peoples for years, almost a century, and no action has been taken by the government.
This act is very important because action will finally be taken and it is proof of the government's will.
