Mr. Gilles Marceau (Lapointe):
Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Justice.
For the past couple of years several Quebec groups, and in particular the Quebec Women's Federation, have been calling for the establishment of a family court. In view of the results of the latest federal-provincial conference at which there was unanimous consensus on the transfer of family rights, could the minister say whether he intends to introduce shortly a bill to amend the constitution so as to set up those family courts, and does the minister, as this will undoubtedly necessitate rather extensive delays, have an alternative which might be immediately applicable to Quebec which could rapidly establish a family court?
