Mr. Speaker, I agree with the member. How would the country of Brazil feel if Canada were to buy one of its companies and then throw its workers out of a job for ten months? I think it would tell the company where to go.
That is what happened with Vale Inco. It came in under the Conservative government with no protection at all for the workers. The minister had the guts to get up in the House and kept saying that the company promised the government this and it promised it that. Guess what? Vale Inco just asked for $1.2 billion loan when it has people on strike. I bet the government will be ready to give it to the company. That is what we are talking about, protecting the interests of Canadians, and the government is not doing that. That is why this motion is so important. If those members do not vote for it, it is because they want to continue the same trend.
