Mr. Speaker, I want to congratulate the member for Beauport—Côte-de-Beaupré—Île d'Orléans—Charlevoix on her new role as critic for rural affairs. I am happy to see that the Conservatives have a critic for rural affairs. They love to talk up the regions, but the fact is that, when push comes to shove, they always end up taking them for granted. I represent a vast and rural riding for which the Conservatives have never done a single thing, and that is why I would like to congratulate my colleague.

I would like to get back to the bill itself. We talked earlier about its importance in the context of cases like the Amber Alert in the Lachute area last Thursday. We believe it is essential to realize that we would have had no way of knowing if Mr. Fredette had left the country. I think it is crucial that we bring in a bill like this to fix this kind of problem.

Does my colleague have any comments on that point?

Monsieur le Président, je veux féliciter la députée de Beauport—Côte-de-Beaupré—Île d'Orléans—Charlevoix pour son nouveau rôle de porte-parole en matière d'affaires rurales. C'est très bien de voir que les conservateurs ont une porte-parole en matière d'affaires rurales. En effet, les conservateurs ont toujours parlé en bien des régions, mais quand venait le temps de poser des gestes concrets, ils tenaient toujours les régions pour acquises. Ma région est grande et rurale, et les conservateurs n'ont jamais rien fait pour nous. Je félicite donc ma collègue.

Je veux revenir sur le projet de loi en tant que tel. Nous avons parlé tout à l'heure de l'importance de ce projet de loi dans le contexte d'une affaire comme celle de l'alerte Amber dans la région de Lachute, jeudi dernier. Nous trouvons très important de noter que si M. Fredette était sorti du pays, nous ne l'aurions pas su. Je pense que c'est très important d'avoir un projet de loi comme celui-ci qui règle ce genre de problème.

Ma collègue a-t-elle des commentaires à faire là-dessus?
