Mr. Speaker, what I said yesterday was not what was said. As I said just a moment ago, in the work that we are doing and the work we will continue to do, we will respect each other's jurisdictions.

Hon. Ken Dryden (Minister of Social Development, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, as the hon. member knows, in order for there to be a true national child care system, the provincial governments cannot do it alone. The federal government cannot do it alone. Everybody needs each other in order for it to happen, including the Quebec system to be a significantly better system than it even is at the moment.

Hon. Ken Dryden (Minister of Social Development, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, as the hon. member said, there was an express commitment in the Speech from the Throne. There are meetings coming up on November 1 and 2 with my provincial counterparts. We will be discussing matters at that particular time.

As the hon. member has suggested, the Quebec system is certainly, in its ambitions, very much a model for a national child care system.
