Madam Speaker, following up on that, I noticed that during his intervention the hon. member for Toronto Centre—Rosedale was trying to turn things around by suggesting that the Americans in retaliating in the so-called banana war against the Europeans are somehow putting the WTO at risk. I suggest what is putting the WTO at great risk is countries which do not adhere to rulings of the WTO, countries that go completely contrary to the thrust of a ruling.
We as the sovereign nation of Canada enter into trade agreements and a dispute arises. Then the dispute is taken to the WTO for a ruling, as it was in this particular case. The WTO ruled on it and now we try to do an end run around the ruling.
That is what is happening with the case of bananas in Europe and with the magazine issue here which is before the House again in Bill C-55. I suggest that what is really putting the World Trade Organization at risk is countries that do not adhere to the rulings.
Would the hon. member comment further on that?
