Cela veut-il dire que les conservateurs ne sont plus en faveur des paiements forfaitaires? Et le gouvernement va-t-il enfin abandonner les procÃ¨s en cours contre les anciens combattants du Canada?
Mr. Parm Gill (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Veterans Affairs, CPC): Mr. Speaker, the member knows full well that the government does not comment on issues, basically, that are before the courts.
Our government has made substantial investments to help Canada's veterans, even though the opposition continues to vote against them. Some of our recent initiatives are: the road to mental health programs, the mental health first aid program, a new operational stress injury clinic in Halifax, with satellite offices across the country, such as St. John's, Chicoutimi, Pembroke, Brockville, Kelowna, Victoria, Montreal and the Greater Toronto Area.
