Mr. Speaker, I want to congratulate my colleague for his bill yesterday. It gave me a good deal of pride to vote for that bill. I serve on the veterans affairs committee and I have been watching a very interesting subject on veterans' suicide. It is meta-traumatizing, if I can call it that, to see what is happening.

From what I understand, the government is committed to providing the retroactive payment today's motion calls for. I am looking to get more information as to what my colleague's concerns are with respect to the motion considering that we are doing what it says.

I want to draw attention to the fact that the Minister of Veterans Affairs was at the veterans affairs committee yesterday talking about how all but two of the veterans offices that had been closed in the last few years have been reopened and the last two are going to be opened in the near future.

I wonder if the member could express his impression of the importance of taking care of our veterans after being in operation as well as while they are in operation.

Monsieur le Président, je tiens à féliciter mon collègue pour son projet de loi, hier. J’étais très fier de voter pour. J’ai siégé au comité des anciens combattants et j’ai assisté à une étude très intéressante sur le suicide chez les anciens combattants. C’est excessivement traumatisant de voir ce qui se produit.

Si je comprends bien, le gouvernement s’est engagé à verser rétroactivement la prime demandée dans la motion d'aujourd’hui. Je souhaiterais en savoir plus sur les inquiétudes de mon collègue concernant la motion puisque nous faisons exactement ce qui y est stipulé.

Je souhaite attirer l’attention sur le fait que le ministre des Anciens Combattants a témoigné hier devant le comité des anciens combattants. Il a parlé des bureaux de services aux anciens combattants qui avaient été fermés ces dernières années et qui ont tous été rouverts, à l’exception de deux qui le seront bientôt.

Je me demande si le député pourrait dire ce qu’il pense de l’importance des services offerts à nos anciens combattants, autant après leur retour de mission que pendant leur déploiement.
