Hon. Jane Stewart (Minister of Human Resources Development, Lib.)

Absolutely not, Mr. Speaker. We have good working relationships with the majority of provinces when it comes to labour market agreements.

I continue to work with a forum of labour market ministers to look at how better to improve these agreements for the benefit of all Canadians.

Hon. Jane Stewart (Minister of Human Resources Development, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, I am sorry I was not paying as close attention as I might have been to the hon. member's question. However I can certainly say in the context of my department when we look at the investments that we make, and itemized in the estimates, they include the national homelessness initiative, the temporary fisheries program, the Voisey's Bay project to ensure that aboriginal people in Newfoundland and Labrador are part of that program and additional money to help us with our SARS strategy.

Hon. Jane Stewart (Minister of Human Resources Development, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, it is unclear to which file the hon. member is making reference. However, it certainly would be up to the RCMP to advise her if it has answers to her questions.

Hon. Jane Stewart (Minister of Human Resources Development, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, what I will confirm is that the Auditor General herself, and himself before, came in and looked at our plan and said that we were on track. We continue to ensure it is implemented.

I would also remind the hon. member that the point in question is about individual wrongdoing and that the department has already taken swift and severe disciplinary action up to and including firing. He would not want to engage in continued speculation because I am sure he wants the police to complete its investigation and get all the facts.

Hon. Jane Stewart (Minister of Human Resources Development, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, I prefer the hon. member depoliticize his questions and listen to the facts here.

Again, this is an issue of individual wrongdoing. We have already acted up to and including firing. The hon. member can go on the website and look at all the grants and contributions made by the Department of Human Resources Development Canada in his riding and in the ridings of all members of the House.
