Mr. Speaker, basically what he is saying it is everybody else's fault. It is never the Conservatives'.
After seeing no leadership and no action from the Conservative government, Canadian cities like Halton Hills are taking matters into their own hands. They are now shutting out suppliers from countries like the U.S. that restrict Canadian manufacturers. A similar resolution will go before the Federation of Canadian Municipalities this Saturday. We are spiralling toward a trade war with our largest trading partner.
When will the Conservative government show some leadership, secure real access to the U.S. market and protect Canadian jobs?
