Mr. Speaker, the COVID-19 pandemic has hit every segment of society and has disproportionately impacted certain segments. That is why young people, students and youth will always have a full voice at the cabinet table. When we came out with our plan, we put forward a $9-billion plan to ensure that we were meeting the needs of students. The first thing we did was stop the interest on and repayment of Canada student loans. To ensure there was a monthly stipend, we brought forward the Canada emergency student benefit, and the list goes on. We will continue working on behalf of students and youth. That is what we are here to do. We will have the backs of Canadians and it is important that we all work together to get this done.
