Mr. Speaker, I can claim to be one-quarter Newfoundlander because my paternal grandfather was born and raised in Fortune Harbour, Notre Dame Bay. Before I ask my question I wish to commend my colleague, the member for Labrador, on his fine remarks and the regional minister for Newfoundland, the Minister of Industry, on this initiative. It is very important and much appreciated by all Canadians.
Would the hon. member share his expertise on what could be done to encourage more Canadians to visit Labrador? It is a beautiful part of Canada that I had the opportunity to see when I visited the hon. member's riding a few years ago. It is an awesome part of the country that so few people have seen. What initiatives could the Canadian government and the government of Newfoundland and Labrador undertake co-operatively to help more Canadians visit there and leave a few of their tourist dollars behind?
