IN THE HOUSE: Question to the Minister of Public Safety

Mr. Randall Garrison (Esquimalt - Saanich - Sooke, NDP): Mr. Speaker, 10 years ago the NDP passed a motion calling on the government to establish a compensation fund for fallen firefighters. The Liberals again promised this fund during the election, yet the Prime Minister spoke to the firefighters yesterday and failed to act on the public safety officer compensation fund. Firefighters are deeply disappointed. When will the Liberals honour this promise and set up this long overdue fund? How much longer will firefighters have to wait for a fund that will protect their families should they make the ultimate sacrifice while protecting the rest of us?
