Hon. Jane Stewart (Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, Lib.)
Mr. Speaker, the best I can do is reiterate what the Minister of Health said on the issue last week in the House.
He said that no one would be happier than he with a compensation package for hepatitis C victims. He said that victims were best served with a package of compensation that involved both levels of government, and he said that he was prepared to wait a little longer to see if we could get that agreement.
