Hon. Gerry Weiner (Minister of Multiculturalism and Citizenship):

Madam Speaker, I was not aware of this particular case, but last February I established a procedure-

-to handle these types of cases quickly and compassionately.

If there are no documents missing, we should be able to do this kind of case in five to six weeks. I will personally look into this case and get back to the hon. member at the earliest possible moment.

I thank the hon. member for her question. The minister is unfortunately away today on government business. I know that she is a defender of the rights of official language minorities throughout the country and I am sure that she will answer the questions when she returns to the House.
