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.
