Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Deputy Prime Minister, who many years ago authored a report about foreign investment in Canada. The sale of Spar Aerospace, and with it the Canadarm, has raised concerns once again about foreign investment in Canada and the extent of it. Investment Canada reports that 796 foreign acquisitions took place in 1998, only 28 were reviewed, all were approved, and this constituted $63 billion in one year in foreign acquisitions.
Is the government not concerned about the extent of foreign acquisitions? If it is concerned, what does it plan to do about it?
