Mr. Speaker, the industry minister was talking about ways in which one increases productivity. That is why he brought in the technology partnerships program. That is why he has been a very strong supporter of increased research and development across the wide range of science and technology. That is why he has supported regional economic development. He understands how important increased productivity is to Canadians.
Increased productivity will come from the kinds of things the industry minister has talked about, not better buggy whipped according to the Reform Party.
