Madam Speaker, it is always a pleasure to take a question from the member for Winnipeg North. I agree with him completely.

It is very important to have a robust system. Bill C-22 offers a very robust system. There are immense challenges. Our intelligence agencies do very interesting things all over the world and somebody needs to oversee them, see what they are doing, ensure they make sense, are within the rules, and have the power to do that without putting any of the operations into jeopardy. What they are doing is a very good, and I am very much supporting this.

Madame la Présidente, je réponds toujours avec plaisir aux questions du député de Winnipeg-Nord. Je suis tout à fait d'accord avec lui.

Il est essentiel de pouvoir compter sur un système robuste. Le projet de loi C-22 propose un système d'une grande robustesse. Les défis sont considérables. Les agences canadiennes du renseignement font un travail très intéressant partout sur la planète. Quelqu'un doit les superviser, regarder ce qu'elles font et s'assurer que les gestes qu'elles posent sont logiques et respectent les règles; il doit avoir le pouvoir d'assurer cette supervision sans mettre aucune activité en péril. Tout cela est très important et a tout mon appui.
