Mr. Speaker,
[English]
my question is for the Minister of Intergovernmental and Northern Affairs.
Yesterday, Canada finally announced changes to the nutrition north program. The additional funding and other changes are welcome. However, the government has failed to fix the biggest problem with the program: its transparency and accountability. For example, the department has admitted the program subsidy received by some retailers is higher than the freight rate they are paying, which is why Nunavummiut believes some retailers are unjustly profiting from the subsidy.
Will the minister commit to finally fixing this problem before the spring budget?
