Athlete Assistance Program, Athletes, Oral questions

Athlètes, Questions orales,

Mr. Speaker, I was very pleased to hear that our government is going to increase funding for the athlete assistance program. It is especially important in light of the fact that the Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, will open in 100 and 128 days, respectively. We hope that our athletes will do their very best.

Can the minister tell us what impact increased funding for the athlete assistance program has on Canada's high level athletes, many of whom are from Laurentides—Labelle?

Monsieur le Président, j'ai été très heureux d'apprendre que notre gouvernement augmentera le financement du Programme d'aide aux athlètes. C'est particulièrement important, alors que nous sommes à 100 jours de l'ouverture des Jeux olympiques et à 128 jours des Jeux paralympiques de PyeongChang en Corée du Sud, où nous espérons que nos athlètes pourront donner le meilleur d'eux-mêmes.

Est-ce que le ministre peut nous dire comment l'augmentation des fonds du Programme d'aide aux athlètes a un impact sur les athlètes canadiens de haut niveau, dont plusieurs viennent de Laurentides—Labelle?
