Mrs. Champagne:

As for the grant funding to which you referred, we will know after this evening. It is not for me to say now what amounts will be allocated for youth.

Finally, the Hon. Member referred to the announcement made by the Minister of Employment and Immigration. This is not my responsibility right now, even though we have conferred. This is a pilot project. I will be delighted to work along with her to develop new ones.

Hon. Andree Champagne (Minister of State (Youth)):

Mr. Speaker, first I would like to thank my hon. colleague for her words of congratulations. I think that in the coming months, she will be able to appreciate what I intend to accomplish in the Department for which the Right Hon. Prime Minister has made me responsible.

As for the Hon. Member's question about future legislation, I may remind her that, through no fault of my own, I am the third Minister in seven months to head this Department. With my departmental officials, we are first trying to clean house. We shall be consulting young people themselves, but not through studies of statistics and statistics on studies, of which we have had more than enough from my predecessors.

Hon. Andree Champagne (Minister of State (Youth)):

Mr. Speaker, perhaps I may point out that at the time of the interview, 85 per cent of young Canadians were able to function normally, despite difficult economic conditions. I also said, if I am being quoted correctly, that of course we were going to take care of people in difficulty. I feel, however, that it is also up to young Canadians and I am thinking of those who are able to function with everybody's help to do their share. In this Government, Mr. Speaker, everyone will have to do his share, and that includes Canada's youth.
