Mr. Speaker, in June 2002 I created the Canadian Automotive Partnership Council with the CEOs of the big five, labour unions, provincial ministers, parts dealers, and everybody involved in the industry in order to work together to develop an effective auto policy for Canada, to attract investment, and to build on what we have.
Last year, Canada was third in the world in the amount of money invested in the auto sector. We are going in the right direction, but we must do more.
I assure the member and the House that the auto sector is a priority for me. I will continue to work away to broaden and deepen investments in Canada.
