Madam Speaker, I completely disagree with my hon. colleague.
This is a provincial jurisdiction, as stated in Canada's Constitution. A poll released today found that when it comes to health care, 81% of Quebeckers only want one thing from the federal government. They want the health transfer from the government.
The National Assembly unanimously adopted a motion calling for an increase in health transfers. The four parties in the National Assembly are calling for this. Moreover, all the premiers of the other provinces want an increase in health transfers.
The government made a mistake when it cut health transfers. The least it can do is admit that it made a mistake, apologize and fix the problem.
I realize that the government is very good at apologizing. Unfortunately, it always apologizes 50 or 100 years too late. The time to apologize and increase health transfers is now.
