Mr. Speaker, access to high-speed Internet is still one of the most serious economic and social problems facing Canada's rural regions, and that includes Laurentides—Labelle. Our government and our team have already done a great deal of work, but we still have a long way to go.

Internet access is key for growing businesses, creating good jobs, getting our Canadian products to global markets and for opportunity in general.

The new Minister of Rural Economic Development has this issue as one of the key priorities in her mandate letter. Could she update the House and rural Canada on her plans for the Internet?

Monsieur le Président, l'accès à Internet à haute vitesse demeure l'un des problèmes économiques et sociaux les plus graves pour l'ensemble des régions rurales du Canada, autant dans la circonscription de Laurentides—Labelle qu'ailleurs. Énormément de travail a déjà été fait par notre gouvernement et par notre équipe, mais il nous reste encore beaucoup à faire.

L'accès à Internet est essentiel pour la croissance des entreprises, la création de bons emplois, l'acheminement des produits canadiens vers les marchés globaux et les occasions économiques en général.

La lettre de mandat de la nouvelle ministre du Développement économique rural établit cette question comme une priorité clé. La ministre pourrait-elle informer la Chambre et les Canadiens des régions rurales de ses plans concernant Internet?
