Mr. Speaker, we are aware that in several years hence there will be significant economic repercussions in northeast New Brunswick due to the closure of mines.
The Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency is already engaged in working with stakeholders trying to find mitigation in terms of its economic development strategies. We are doing grassroots, bottom level economic development in northeast New Brunswick. I would be pleased to continue to work with the hon. member and most important, with economic development groups from the area to rebuild that economy.
