Mr. Speaker, there are others who have spoken about this package and let me quote them. The Federation of Canadian Municipalities, representing hundreds of municipalities across the country, says:
--but this announcement demonstrates the federal government’s commitment to work with municipal governments to strengthen communities that have been hit hard.
Mr. Trevor Wakelin of the Alberta Forest Products Association Lumber Trade Council said:
We welcome the news. We're very pleased that the federal government has come forward to take care of our workers.
Those Canadians understand that this package is good for them, it is good for the industry and it is good for Canada.
