Mr. Speaker, it is not just a question of short term jobs; it is also a question of long term control over our economy.
I ask the Deputy Prime Minister again, hearkening back to another day: What has happened to the Liberal Party that brought in the Foreign Investment Review Agency, the national energy program and a number of other measures that expressed concern about foreign control, in particular American control of the Canadian economy? Is this no longer on the government's agenda? Is it simply a matter of Canada being up for sale and the highest bidder take all? Is that the situation we are in?
