Madam Speaker, I might be accused of always asking the same question, but that is because we never get an answer in the House. I will ask it anyway. I very much appreciated my hon. colleague's speech, and I have a great deal of empathy for anyone dealing with the tragedy of a rare disease. On that, I agree with everyone who spoke here today.
On the other hand, I do not how this will unfold. Last June, the National Assembly voted unanimously on a motion stating that Quebec would refuse to adhere to a pan-Canadian pharmacare plan. Whether the CAQ, the PQ or Québec solidaire is in power, everyone in Quebec wants nothing to do with this. We have our own system. It is not perfect, but it works pretty well.
What we want is for Ottawa to give us the money. We have no problem with Canada creating a national pharmacare program. What we want are health transfers. We have been asking for that for years now. Quebec's health care system is underfunded. We want a 5.2% health transfer. If Ottawa wants to create a national program, that is fine, but we want money.
What are my colleague's thoughts on that?
