Mr. Chair, the hon. member kept stressing the need for a long term, durable arrangement. If NAFTA is not a long term, durable relationship negotiated freely between Canada and the United States, what the heck is it?
He is saying that we should enter into more negotiations with the United States for another long term, durable agreement when the one that we have, which his party thought was a long term, durable and successful agreement, does not seem to be working. His response to our inability to see that arrangement work properly is to enter into another set of negotiations to come up with another agreement that maybe the United States will just choose to ignore as well.
