Mr. Speaker, it is not that I do not believe that the committees should or could study this type of information; it is just that I do not see how a new committee could change things when the current committee can already carry out such a study.

As was mentioned, there are 70,000 jobs in this sector. It is important to do the necessary research on how this sector is used. However, having two committees rather than one study this issue would not change anything.

Monsieur le Président, ce n'est pas que je ne pense pas que les comités devraient ou pourraient se pencher sur ce genre d'information; c'est plutôt que je ne vois pas comment un nouveau comité réussirait à changer les choses, alors que le comité actuel peut déjà procéder à une telle étude.

Comme on l'a mentionné, il y a 70 000 emplois dans ce secteur. C'est important de faire les recherches nécessaires sur la façon dont on utilise ce secteur. Toutefois, ce n'est pas en ayant deux comités plutôt qu'un qui se penchent sur cette question qu'on changera cette réalité.
