Unfortunately, I am going to have to allow the minister to respond within the time frame. There are only 18 seconds left.

Before giving the floor to the hon. member for Montmagny—L'Islet—Kamouraska—Rivière-du-Loup, I would like to remind members that there can be no points of order during the time for questions addressed to ministers.

I need to interrupt for a second. I am just wondering if the minister is having problems with his camera.

Madam Chair, I will be splitting my time with the member for Hamilton Mountain.
As the economy starts to reopen and many child care providers must reduce their capacity due to physical distancing measures, investments in child care are more crucial now than ever. Since women make up half of Canada's workforce, there will be no recovery without women, and they cannot recover without child care.
Will the government commit to establishing universal, high-quality child care?

Madam Chair, there is not a national standard across the board.
Today in committee, the Minister for Women and Gender Equality agreed to establish an act for child care like the Canada Health Act to ensure children and parents would equal access no matter where they lived in Canada to high-quality and affordable early learning and child care.
How long will Canadians have to wait for this act and how will the government back it up with the necessary funding?

Madam Chair, access to child care and onward to post-secondary education continues to be out of reach for most Canadians. That is why the failed rollout of the Canada student service grant is incredibly troubling and needs an immediate fix. The Liberal government continues to prioritize its friends, who are richer, over the needs of other Canadians and many students.
Will the Liberal government either cancel this program and transfer the funds to Canada summer jobs or give grants directly to the volunteer sector?

Madam Chair, the government has expressed many times in the House that it has the backs of workers. However, thousands of Canadian workers and their families could be put at risk in the coming months because they will be ineligible for benefits under the wage earner protection program if the company they work for claims bankruptcy in a foreign country like the United States.
In 2018, Parliament passed legislation to fix this program, but the Liberals have not bothered to do the order in council that would bring it into force. Why are they putting Canadian workers at risk and when will they fix the problem?
