Business of Supply Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I am trying to listen to the member and I am hearing a lot of chatter from the other side. Perhaps the member could ask his colleagues to calm down so we can all listen.

Human Resources committee We can maybe do some more research on that, Madame Bouchard.
Human Resources committee Just to build on the comments by Mr. Zimmer, we're trying to provide the quality of life of the south, but in the north.
