Mr. Speaker, my thoughts go out to all those who have been hard hit by COVID-19 and to all those who will be, the non-COVID patients. We need to learn from this health crisis. One of the lessons we need to take from this is that we do not need small measures and meddling from the government.
The member for Bourassa is a member from Quebec. We need sustainable measures and investments to get through this pandemic. One of the lessons that we learned is that we were not prepared. My grandmother used to say that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, but prevention fell by the wayside when the successive federal governments decided not to abide by the agreement to invest 50% in health transfers and payments.
The member for Bourassa, who is also a resident of that riding, must rise and tell us whether he will vote with the Parliament of Quebec, which is unanimously calling for $28 billion in catch-up payments and the indexing of health transfers to 6%.
Will he vote with the united front presented by Quebec and the other provinces? He is a Quebec MP.
