Madam Speaker, I agree with the principle behind that. It is important to keep that in mind.
My colleague was a member of the Quebec National Assembly. Four years ago, I worked with him on this bill. My colleague knows full well that we need to take action because there are people who are suffering right now. He also knows very well that, in Quebec, we did things right. It took six years of work to get the job done.
During that six-year period, there were people who were suffering and who would have liked to have access to this sort of care, but we took the time to do things right. Similarly, four years ago, in 2015, when we were just elected, we passed similar legislation under a very tight deadline because the Supreme Court ordered us to do so, but we still did not completely rush the debate.
I agree with my colleague when he says that there are people who are suffering right now. However, there were also people who were suffering in the six years that it took us to do our job properly in the Quebec National Assembly. I do not think that anyone in Quebec or Canada can say that we did not do our job properly in Quebec during the six years that we took to study this extremely delicate subject.
