Mr. Speaker, access to reliable broadband Internet service is very important in today's economy. Rural and remote regions, like certain areas in my riding of Laurentides-Labelle, do not have the necessary infrastructure to support broadband services. I cannot wait for the “connect to innovate” program to be implemented to fix this problem.

Would the Prime Minister like to update the House on this, one of the most important issues to Canadians living in rural areas all across the country?

Monsieur le Président, l'accès aux services Internet fiables et à large bande est très important pour l'économie d'aujourd'hui. Les zones rurales et éloignées, telles que celles qu'on retrouve dans ma circonscription, Laurentides—Labelle, n'ont pas les infrastructures nécessaires pour soutenir des services à large bande adéquats. Je suis très enthousiasmé à l'idée que le programme Brancher pour innover soit mis en oeuvre pour corriger cette situation.

J'invite le premier ministre à donner des nouvelles à ce sujet, un sujet parmi les plus importants pour les Canadiens vivant en milieu rural partout au Canada.
