Madam Speaker, I am always happy to ask questions of my colleague, the member for Louis-Saint-Laurent, on any subject.

I find this one very interesting. We spoke not too long ago with many of his colleagues about the issue of Bill C-21 and why it is essential that it be put in place in case situations arise like the Amber Alert that was issued in the Lachute area, for instance. There has been a lot of talk about privacy concerns, but no more data is being given. The bill simply allows us to obtain information already available abroad precisely so that we can better protect our own in cases like the one that happened last week.

Does my colleague agree this bill needs to pass with some urgency so that we can, in emergency cases, prevent someone from crossing the border without anyone knowing?

Madame la Présidente, je suis toujours heureux d'interpeller mon collègue le député de Louis-Saint-Laurent sur n'importe quel sujet.

Celui-ci, je le trouve très intéressant. Nous avons parlé tout à l'heure, avec plusieurs de ses collègues, de l'enjeu du projet de loi C-21 et de l'importance de le mettre en place pour des cas comme celui de l'alerte Amber qu'il y a eue dans la région de Lachute. Nous avons beaucoup entendu parler d'inquiétudes quant à la vie privée des gens, mais cela n'a créé aucune nouvelle donnée. Ce projet de loi nous donne l'occasion d'avoir une copie des données qui existent à l'étranger, ce que je trouve intéressant et important, justement pour protéger notre population dans les circonstances comme celle de la semaine dernière.

Mon collègue est-il d'accord qu'il y a urgence de mettre ce projet de loi en place justement pour empêcher que quelqu'un traverse la frontière lors d'une situation urgente sans qu'on le sache?
