Madam Speaker, I want to congratulate my colleague on a very well delivered speech. I would expect nothing less from a man of wisdom, one with so many years of experience.
He delivered a speech that showed a great deal of concern for Canadians, and I thank him very much for that, as well as for his work and his words.
I would like to address a few points in his speech. I would like my colleague to respond to them with his own comments.
In terms of our investments in health care, we spent an additional $2 billion not too long ago to try and catch up on surgeries that were delayed because of the pandemic. That was on top of the $4.5 billion that was added during the pandemic, also to help Canadians.
With respect to Bill C‑32, I would like to remind my colleague that the Canada workers benefit will also help those in need.
