Mr. Speaker, with respect to our exports to Cuba, the member will be interested to know that they have actually doubled in 1995 over 1994.
We also have in excess of $200 million of investment in Cuba. We are looking after the interests of Canadians with respect to this matter on the Helms-Burton bill by making representations to the Government of the United States. My colleague, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, is in Washington today making those representations to his counterpart.
I have previously made representations to my counterpart in the United States and will continue to do so. We have also filed a letter with respect to a complaint under the North American Free Trade Agreement and will be pursuing that matter so that we can look
after the interests of Canadians and can clearly tell the United States that when it comes to the establishment of foreign policy and trade policy for Canada, we will establish it here and Canadians can lawfully engage in trade and exports and investment in Cuba.
