Mr. Speaker, listening to my colleague talk about the budget was a delight.

My riding is north of Montreal. It is a prosperous suburb with many small and medium-sized businesses, including some in the aerospace sector, and a lot of export activity. I am also fortunate to be a member of the Standing Committee on International Trade, which studied a number of free trade agreements, including the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement, CETA, and the comprehensive and progressive agreement for trans-Pacific partnership, the CPTPP. The latter will be implemented under Bill C-79, which was introduced today.

I would like to know how this will help the middle class in my riding and the rest of Canada. Will it help grow the middle class by opening up opportunities for female entrepreneurs in our ridings? I would like my colleague to talk about the opportunities these agreements and the budget will create.
