Services gouvernementaux partagés, Statisticien en chef du Canada, Statistique Canada, Statistiques, Systèmes informatiques, Troisième lecture et adoption,

Madam Speaker, I think it defeats the purpose of Shared Services Canada if we start getting all the departments back in their own systems.

We went from 460-odd data centres to seven for a reason. If we start undoing that work, we will not be making progress. It will make things more complicated, take longer to fix, cost more money, and make no meaningful progress. As I said before, if we really want to fix the issues that are being brought up, proper firewalling and proper administration of the systems will address the problems.

Madame la Présidente, je crois que, si on commence redonner leur propre réseau à tous les ministères, Services partagés Canada n'aura plus de raison d'être.

Nous sommes passés d'environ 460 centres de données à sept, et ce n'est pas pour rien. Si nous commençons à défaire ce travail, nous ne progresserons pas. Les problèmes seront plus complexes, ils prendront plus de temps à régler et ils coûteront plus cher, et nous ne réaliserons aucun progrès notable. Comme je l'ai dit auparavant, si nous souhaitons vraiment régler les problèmes qui sont soulevés, il faut un coupe-feu adéquat et une bonne gestion des systèmes.
