Mr. Nicholls also had a baby this past weekend.

I just mentioned it so we can congratulate him.

I don't have a notice of motion, but it seems to me that we voted not to have a meeting next Thursday. We already voted on that.

Mr. Gravelle talked about the importance of francophone programs for small communities, and I fully concur. However, he said something that's not true, and I cannot believe it.
I personally listen to the radio a lot when travelling to Ottawa. However, Radio-Canada does not talk about the Champlain Bridge until 9 a.m., but about the cities in the region, Saint-Joseph Boulevard and other Gatineau streets. Afterwards, they switch to the national network, and the programming content becomes more cultural. What you are saying is false, but aside from that, I completely agree that we must make sure Radio-Canada maintains its services to all the small remote francophone communities in the rest of Canada.
However, I completely disagree—my apologies to Mr. Nicholls and others—with working this summer. This is a very important topic. It may actually be the most important issue we can tackle, and that is why we have to approach it very seriously. That cannot be done haphazardly in two meetings, in the middle of the summer, to piss off everyone else. Pardon my impolite language.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you very much to all the witnesses.
I don't usually sit on this committee. I am replacing someone.
When you talk about our seniors, I would like to know whether I am considered one or not. How do you describe a senior? That is my first question.
My second point has to do with the shame related to aging. It might be more appropriate perhaps to talk about “difficulty”. You did not talk about loneliness when you gave the definition of people who are ashamed to grow older, whether by drinking, by taking drugs or in any other way.
Furthermore, what is your main expectation from the federal framework for suicide prevention?
My last question is for the three of you. If you had to choose one priority only in what you are proposing to the government, what would it be? From everything you have said, what is the most important aspect in the prevention of suicide among seniors? Of course, an increase in the budget would be appreciated, but I don't think that's all. I think you might expect something else and I would like to know what it is.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I have two questions for Mr. Beaulieu.

A $1-million donation is really a lot of money. How did you resolve the potential issue with the health care system? You have received a lot of money in grants to address mental health problems. How did the health care system respond?
Do you provide funding to change people's attitudes? You could change attitudes with so much money.
I am very familiar with Rouyn-Noranda. People have their preconceived notions in small communities. The smaller the community, the more stigma there is; the larger the community, the less stigma there is. Have you set aside any funds for working on that aspect of mental health recognition?

I have another question for you.
Do you have contacts with people from other municipalities—in Quebec or the rest of Canada—who are interested in your project?

Yes. Is Mr. Nicholls simply absent or has he resigned? I heard—

Mr. Fraser, thank you for joining us today. I would like to thank your team as well.
All of us here certainly support the existence of our two official languages and consider it important to develop communities in both official languages. Do you feel that the government has a similar desire, namely a willingness to do that?

Do you have some power in that regard, apart from submitting a report? As we know, a report shows that you support a number of things, but do you have a slightly broader and substantial power in this area?

I will ask you a specific question, since you want to bring this up.
The government has decided to transfer 34 federal employees in my riding to Miramichi. We know that Miramichi is an English-speaking town. Everyone knows that federal jobs are good jobs. We are taking federal jobs away from a community already facing many financial and employment difficulties to send them elsewhere. Is this not a sign of a certain who-cares attitude? The government said this was happening because it wanted to renew the file, gather the problems together in one place and all of that.
In my riding, francophones represent 99.5% of the population, but the government thinks that it is not a big deal to take very specialized officials and encourage them to leave their French-speaking world. They could be given the choice of going to Miramichi. The government says that it will meet with these employees and maybe find them a job, but not in their community. It could be anywhere else.
What do you think of the government's attitude towards francophone communities?
