Mr. Speaker, we are all concerned about the situation that seniors face in long-term care centres across the country. As I said, the federal government stands ready to support the provinces in their area of responsibility and jurisdiction. We will not be telling the provinces what they need to do in their areas of jurisdiction, but we all know that there is a need for serious conversations within all orders of government and among all Canadians about how we ensure that we are taking better care of our vulnerable seniors, who have built this country and who we need to do far better by than we have been doing so far.
