Mr. Speaker, as the member of Parliament for Prince Albert-Churchill River and the chair of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Natural Resources, I extend my congratulations to the citizens and town council of Creighton, Saskatchewan today. They have passed an important resolution supporting the Keep Mining in Canada campaign and the industry's 10-point plan to create a healthy investment climate for mining in Canada.
Creighton is the 132nd community across Canada to adopt such a resolution to demonstrate its support for a continued, thriving mining industry in Canada. The health of these 132 local economies depends significantly on the health of the mining sector.
The 132 resolutions show that these towns care deeply about the future of the mining industry and I for one applaud the town of Creighton and all Canadians who care about working together to ensure a healthy mining sector.
