Bradley Trost Saskatoon—Humboldt, SK

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-385, An Act respecting ownership of uranium mines in Canada.

Mr. Speaker, I wish to thank the member for Desnethé—Missinippi—Churchill River for seconding this legislation.

This legislation would enable foreign investors to purchase and own the entirety of Canadian uranium mines and properties. This is a policy that has been supported by not just the current government of Saskatchewan but previous NDP and Conservative governments in Saskatchewan because it would increase jobs and investment in our province and throughout the country.
