Mr. Casileden:

I would be pleased if the minister would endorse that. If he will, it would mean that subsections (1) and (2) in clause 2 would have to be deleted. Would the minister put this matter straight? One of his colleagues has said that this covers everyone who is sick in Canada. As I interpret clause 2, it does not. Will the minister straighten this out and let us know what hope there is of making this scheme universal so that it will include everyone who is sick?

Will he set us straight and let us know what hope there is of making it universal so that it will take in everyone who is sick?
