Mr. Speaker, like they watched carefully while thousands of Canadians lost their jobs.
Canadian steel companies have been potentially sideswiped by the America bill. We have Americans who are looking for ways to get their economy and their industries working. We should too. That way we can assure that Canadian dollars pay for Canadian steel to build Canadian buildings and Canadian bridges. With buy-Canadian provisions we can benefit from every stimulus dollar.
Other countries are investing in their workers and in their industries. Why is the government not doing the same?
