Mr. Speaker, first, it is fair to say that while we have received the congratulations from the NDP on this issue, we do have very different views.
Our view is that the Canadian economy does require participation in foreign investment markets in a globalized economy. At the same time, we believe that major investments have to be reviewed to ensure they are in the best interests of our country.
The NDP has a broader opposition to foreign investment in principle, one that we think is out of step with the realities of the global economy.
The leader of the NDP raises questions about the act and whether it should be reviewed. While I do not agree with all things in the NDP motion, the act should be reviewed.
