Mr. Speaker, I want to thank my colleague for his important question.
As he aptly noted, Bill C‑13 is currently before the Standing Committee on Official Languages for a clause-by-clause review. Official language minority communities have been waiting for this bill for a long time. Like them, I look forward to having this bill adopted.
I hope that the committee will complete its work shortly since stakeholders from one end of the country to the other want this bill passed as soon as possible.
