Mr. Speaker, I am glad to salute the work of the member of Parliament for Fleetwood—Port Kells. As he said, millions of families and workers across Canada are feeling the pain and the suffering that this emergency situation is bringing, and that is why we have also implemented emergency measures. One of them is the Canada emergency response benefit.
I am pleased to report that as of today, a total of 6.7 million Canadians have applied for the Canada emergency emergency response benefit, for a total of 8.7 million applications. Of them, 8.4 million have been treated already.
