Broadband Internet services, Oral questions, Rural communities

Communautés rurales, Questions orales, Services Internet à large bande

Mr. Speaker, access to reliable broadband Internet is crucial to participating in today's economy.

Rural and remote areas, like my region of Laurentides—Labelle, do not have the necessary infrastructure to support broadband services. My constituents were therefore happy to hear about the government's budget 2016 promise regarding broadband Internet access.

Can the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development provide the House with an update on this critical issue for all of rural Canada?

Monsieur le Président, l'accès à un service Internet à large bande fiable est primordial pour pouvoir participer à l'économie d'aujourd'hui.

Les zones rurales et éloignées, comme chez nous, dans Laurentides—Labelle, n'ont pas les infrastructures nécessaires pour soutenir les services à large bande adéquats. Par ailleurs, mes concitoyens ont été heureux d'entendre la promesse du gouvernement qui se trouve dans le budget de 2016 au sujet de l'accès aux services Internet à large bande.

Le ministre de l’Innovation, des Sciences et du Développement économique peut-il faire le point sur cette question cruciale pour tout le Canada rural?
