Public Services and Procurement  Mr. Speaker, we have an outstanding public service, and we trust the public sector employees we work with every day. We are investing in Canadians to ensure that our economy continues to grow and that programs are properly designed to help Canadians who need them most. All of these programs are administered by our wonderful public sector workers.

Finance  Mr. Speaker, we believe that we need to invest in Canadians to help them get through tough times, as we did during the pandemic and as we are doing right now with the increase in inflation. That is why we are helping students by eliminating interest on student loans. That is why we introduced the new Canada workers benefit and created the Canada dental benefit for children under 12.

Housing  Mr. Speaker, it is true that Canadians have placed their trust in us for eight years now. Election after election after election, we have been here to represent them in government. Canadians know we are here for them. We were there for them during the pandemic. We are here to lift children out of poverty with the Canada child benefit and other measures.

Government Services and Procurement  Mr. Speaker, we are still waiting for the Conservatives to come up with solutions to help Canadians deal with the difficult times we are currently facing with rising interest rates. We know what the Conservatives' solutions are, because we have seen them in the past. It is “every person for themselves”, with cuts to all the programs that are there to help those who really need it.

Government Services and Procurement  Mr. Speaker, as we know, the situation is currently unstable. Times are tough for Canadians. We dealt with the pandemic. We were there for people and we are proud of that. It was the right thing to do. Now that we are going through another difficult period with higher interest rates, we will continue to be there for people most in need.

Firearms  Mr. Speaker, after what we just heard from our Conservative colleagues and the insults they have hurled at my colleagues, we will take no lessons from them on this. When it comes to firearms, we have been clear from the beginning. We would never prevent hunters from hunting or prevent indigenous communities from practising their traditions.

Firearms  Mr. Speaker, our government is committed to working with all parliamentarians, with our colleagues in the Bloc and the NDP, to ensure that this bill is well balanced and that it achieves the objectives we have set, specifically, to get rid of the assault weapons used in massacres like the ones at the Quebec City mosque and École Polytechnique, while at the same time protecting the rights of hunters and indigenous communities.

Obviously, our government wants to do more to better protect women.

Sports  Mr. Speaker, we are hearing some truly heartbreaking stories from athletes, including gymnasts. I stand in solidarity with those people every day. Obviously, the sports community should be a place that is good for a person's mental and physical health. Every component of Canada's sports system needs to do better.

Sports  Mr. Speaker, I want to commend the courageous athletes who told their story and testified about the abuse they suffered in the sports system. I want them to know that I hear them, I see them and I believe them. At the national level, we have created the Office of the Sport Integrity Commissioner, which can investigate cases of abuse, but also investigate the culture in certain sports.

Finance  Mr. Speaker, I commend my colleague for her excellent work and for her question. The government is listening to Canadians and it is working tirelessly to support them.

Sport  Mr. Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague from Châteauguay—Lacolle for the great work she does.

This investment is about making all levels of sport in Canada more inclusive and accessible.
