Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the member for Rosemont—La Petite-Patrie for his question.
As I said to our Bloc Québécois colleague, I would prefer to limit the debate to the provisions and framework of this bill.
As I said, the bill addresses two categories of problematic time limits that need immediate attention. The first is time limits in civil litigation. The second is regulatory deadlines in federal acts and regulations. Again, I cannot connect this to any other situation. That particular situation does not fall within the context of civil litigation. This is specifically about regulations where Canadians might find themselves in a situation that violates the usual time limits set out in other legislation. The bill we just introduced allows certain aspects to be suspended for up to six months or extended in order to ensure that Canadians who are trying to do the right thing can comply with the law. We will ensure that by following the regulations, they are not breaking any laws.
How they would find themselves outside of the positions of respecting the timelines that are already contained in previous legislation.
