Mr. Speaker, the government knows that Burnt Church is more than just a fishery issue.
Bob Rae has indicated publicly that he is prepared to resume mediation if the parties call upon him to do that. He believes that there is potential for a negotiated result.
I would like to direct my question again to the Deputy Prime Minister. Will the government make the first move and ask Mr. Rae to continue working with the parties to achieve a peaceful resolution?
