Mr. Speaker, let us be clear. The New Democrats have always recognized Quebec's unique history within Canada.
With respect to the motion put forward by the Bloc, the component I find myself challenged with is the suggestion that the federal government should provide funding to Quebec and other provinces with no strings attached. In some cases we actually do need to set national standards. For example, with the Canada Health Act, we need to set national standards to ensure that when dollars flow we have the deliverables from the provinces.
Take a look at what is going on right now in New Brunswick with Clinic 554. Right now people are not able to access the very services they need for reproductive health, particularly the LGBTQ2+ and transgender communities. That is not okay. We need to set national standards to ensure that everyone can access the health care they need.
