  • Spoke about Canadian Heritage

    Mr. Speaker, one of Canada's greatest and most celebrated strengths is its diversity. Despite this, recent cutbacks at ethnocultural television stations have caused the cancellation of more than 21 programs representing at least 12 minority language groups. Encouraging and promoting diversity in our media is a principle supported by all Canadians, and a central objective of Canada's broadcasting. ... more

  • Spoke about North Korean Refugees

    Mr. Speaker, earlier today South Korea indicated it will do more to help refugees fleeing their repressive northern regime, a measure responding to the recent forced repatriation of nine North Korean refugees from Laos. The defectors were detained and handed over to North Korea, a move that contravenes the UN convention on refugees. Such violations are not unusual and the incident only underscores the need for action. ... more

    In spite of the fact that we expect that more people are going to be working longer—one of your comments earlier was about the number of people who are not retiring at 65, who are choosing to work to 69, or whatever the number.

    —in order to reach that. It's a fairly significant amount of money. It increased a lot after 2008. I mean, you had a small surplus in 2008—and you know we had a bit of a recession issue, a few things here and there, in spite of people denying we had one at one point—but it seems to have grown quite substantially. I don't know—you're doing the numbers—but it seems that it really grew a lot from 2008 to 2011. In three years it went from a small surplus of a $1 billion to a deficit of $4.4 billion.

    There could be another increase coming in those two years—

    When you've made the estimates of the contribution rates for 2013, 2014, and 2015 to the Treasury Board, I assume at that point they will be re-evaluated as to whether they need to be increased more at that time, depending on how things are going or the state of the economy.

    Was there ever a surplus in the pension plan?

    Mr. Ménard, on the unfunded liabilities of obligations from the Government of Canada, can you tell me what the amount is?

    That would be the final decision-maker?

  • Spoke at a meeting of Government Operations

    You're trying to ramp up to 13%. I'm very interested in reallocating money that's put into pensions back into our own country. You have a board of directors, I assume, that does all that analysis and then comes forth with a recommendation as to where it's a good investment for your money—our money.

    How are the decisions made as to your investments? I'm still back on infrastructure.

    What's the difference, if we want to fix that?

  • Spoke at a meeting of Government Operations

    As an example, if you're going to get up to 13% in infrastructure, and I appreciate the fact that you're investing the money wisely, I hope, in many of these other countries.... We have a huge challenge here when it comes to our own infrastructure needs. How would our municipalities approach you for an investment? Through which division would they be applying for the partnership in P3s and those kinds of things in Canada? Do you get involved in those at all, whether it's a hospital being built or some other part of the infrastructure system?
