Mr. Speaker, any time we have an electronic system that can be compromised, it is very important the election system itself is kept to a paper system and that outside interference is blocked in every possible way.

Given the nature of the Internet, and net neutrality is a whole discussion we will have in a couple of weeks, it is very hard to block or manage different traffic from different parts of the world. Every effort we can take to achieve that is extraordinarily important for the protection of our democracy.

Monsieur le Président, l'intégrité de tout système électronique peut être compromise. Il est essentiel que le système électoral lui-même continue d'être axé sur le papier et que tout soit fait pour bloquer l'ingérence extérieure.

Compte tenu de la nature d'Internet — et nous aurons une tout autre discussion sur la neutralité du Net dans quelques semaines —, il est extrêmement difficile de bloquer ou de gérer le trafic provenant de différentes régions du monde. Tous les efforts que nous pouvons déployer pour y arriver sont d'une importance capitale pour la protection du régime démocratique canadien.
