Mr. Speaker, it is clear the government completely abandoned northern Ontario when it allowed Vale to walk away with Inco.
Now we learn that Grant Forest Products is in danger of being picked up by U.S. multinational Georgia-Pacific. This takeover is being engineered without public scrutiny, behind closed doors, in a bankruptcy process.
The federal government has an obligation to review any takeovers in the nature of $400 million.
Will the government commit to a full review of any attempted takeover of a Canadian resource company by a U.S. multinational before that takeover is allowed to go ahead?
