Mr. Speaker, I do not understand why it takes 10 minutes to ask a question that should take 30 seconds.
As I stated, I was not present at the hearings, but I did pull out the witness list. If we look at the list, the cities of Burnaby, Nanaimo, North Vancouver, Port Alberni, Port Moodie, West Vancouver and Vancouver regional district, and I can keep going on, are all unanimously in favour of the legislation.
If there is a problem at the municipal level, I think the provincial and federal authorities can all come together. If we can use the example at present in Montreal, where all three levels of government are working in harmony and together, the legislation addresses some of those issues.
We should adopt the legislation and move forward so we can address the next challenges the economy faces, which is one of productivity.
