Mr. Speaker, everyone knows how much credibility the Liberals have in Quebec.
That said, if the Liberals want a little more credibility, perhaps the minister could start by answering the questions.
I am asking him about loan guarantees for the softwood lumber industry. All the companies are asking for that. I met with representatives from the major companies on Friday. They are asking for the same thing the Bloc has been for years. The unions are asking for the same thing.
Could the minister give a clear answer, without grandstanding, to this one very specific question only: will they grant loan guarantees this week? The question is clear.
