Mr. Speaker, last fall, the Minister of Industry said:
The government is developing a strategy for the Canadian automotive sector that will be the most dynamic strategy we have had in Canada for 50 years. The 80,000 workers in the automotive industry will still be there in 10 years. The number will actually grow.
It is now a year later and still no strategy.
Today 3,900 job losses at GM were announced which means 25,000 spinoff jobs lost, 25,000 mortgages and 25,000 families affected.
When will the minister admit that the government has failed auto workers and Liberal inaction is costing Canadians their livelihood?
