Public Services and Procurement  Madam Speaker, I have statistics too. Last year, 74% of employees had problems when they transferred to a different job.

Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement Implementation Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his very relevant question, which I answered at the beginning of my speech.
