Part of a balanced breakfast

Hansard officially records Bev Oda’s response yesterday to a question from Liberal MP Mark Eyking as follows.

Mr. Speaker, our government is committed to making sure its international assistance is making a difference for those in developing countries. That is why we are focused on targeting the countries we work in. This is not about organizations. This is about getting more kids in school, more mothers to health clinics, more nutrition, more healthy infants at birth, more text books and more qualified teachers. This is getting results and making a difference.

What she actually said is this (emphasis mine).
