Mr. Speaker, last week I met with the stakeholders of the tourism industry and they are upset with the government.
The Minister of Transport is not allowing air access to Canadian airports. The Minister of Human Resources and Social Development is not helping with staff shortages. The Minister of National Revenue has taken away the individual GST rebate and has denied adequate customs services. The Minister of Industry has cut promotion. Finally, the Minister of Foreign Affairs has failed to get approved destination status for China.
Hello? Does anybody over there care about the tourism industry?
