Thank you, Mr. Chair.
In one sentence, we want the agreement to be approved by the commissioner and for it to be set out in writing. That is what we are asking for.
Am I wrong? I apologize, Mr. Chair.
What people have been discussing is very interesting, but the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness told the committee that protestors, Aboriginal peoples, unions and separatists are not targeted by this bill.
We want that in writing, in black and white, so that it is truly clear. I come from a labour background, and if people had to go on strike tomorrow morning, then I want that to be clear in the legislation. For now, it is open to interpretation and that is what we are dealing with this morning at this table. It would be easier if it were written in black and white. That is what the Bloc Québécois is asking for.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Our amendment pertains to the exchange of specific information. We are proposing that the information sharing agreements between organizations be concluded with the written approval of the Privacy Commissioner and that “any information shared in contravention of the provisions of this Act is to be deleted.”
We want there to be a written agreement that is approved by the Privacy Commissioner when information is requested on a certain subject. We are asking for oversight.
Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
As we announced many times and as discussed when we examined the anti-terrorism bill, we are proposing that this legislation include an expiry date. We want the legislation and its application to be thoroughly reviewed by the committee three years after it has come into effect.
We want it to have an end date. That is what we are asking, Mr. Chair.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
This amendment has to do with eliminating the expanded scope of arrests without a warrant. Under Bill C-51, there are fewer conditions to initiate an investigation or to arrest an individual by replacing words like “will commit” with “could commit”, and “necessary to prevent” with “is likely to prevent the carrying out of the terrorist activity”.
Our amendment would prevent these conditions from being lowered and eliminate the authority of the Federal Court to issue preventive detention warrants without acceptable proof.

I agree to withdraw my motion so that Mr. Galipeau can move it instead.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Mr. Knight, you said earlier that the postsecondary achievement rate for youth is 60%, meaning that 40% are unsuccessful.
The population is aging, but we also have to think about people who are losing their jobs. I will be speaking about Quebec, because I do not know what is going on elsewhere in Canada. There is tremendous job loss in Quebec. However, some 40- or 45-year-olds are able to continue working for another 10, 12, 15 years.
What are we doing for those people? What are we doing to help those young people who quit school or who have problems studying at the postsecondary level, so that they can learn a good trade and earn a living?
What are we doing for aboriginal people? It is all well and good to give out money, but before we resort to using immigration—I have nothing against immigrants—it would be preferable to look after ourselves first. What are we doing to help those people, in tangible terms?

Would it be possible to develop some other type of training, sir? Not all of these young people who are experiencing problems at school are capable of becoming notaries or lawyers, they cannot all go to university or CEGEP. That is not for everyone. Some must learn a basic trade.
As was mentioned earlier, many of these people get on-the-job training in the plants. In the place where I used to work, they even installed equipment that was more modern and sophisticated. So CEGEP professors were hired and brought into the plant. It took six months to learn the job. It was a technician's job and they knew how to do it too.
Would it be possible to do a similar thing and develop skills along those lines, to reach out to the people who are experiencing difficulties and teach them the trade, so that they can work and contribute to society?

Mr. Chair, I'll share my time with Mrs. Crowder.
My question is for Mrs. Warburton.
You talked about very high dropout rates. Can you tell me why these rates are so high? What was done to reduce these rates and to bring those kids back to school?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
The only thing I want to say is that we are going to cause even more damage.
This measure was put in place to help people being released from prison to rehabilitate, to find a job, and so on. We are still going to adopt legislation that will cause more difficulties for these people. We aren't going to lift them out of misery; we're going to give them even more misery.
I believe in rehabilitation. But with this measure, there is going to be less of it.
That's all I wanted to say, Mr. Chair.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Mr. Beauséjour, you know that the system was established in 1959 by the Progressive Conservatives. They must have had a reason for setting the extension to 104 weeks. Do you know why?

The system was implemented to help rehabilitate prisoners. When we talk about prisoners, we have to be careful because we are talking about prisoners serving a sentence of two years less a day, not hardened criminals. We are talking about crimes related to fragile mental health, addiction, poverty, theft, and so on.
Mr. Beauséjour, my question has to do with our rehabilitation-related obligations to workers sentenced to at least a year in jail. In your view, is that fair?

Let me rephrase my question. In your view, what can we do to make the situation fairer and more equitable for people?

Okay.
Manon, did you want us to share the time? You can go ahead.
