Mr. Speaker, the motion tonight has to do with oil tanker traffic. It has nothing to do with anything the member raised.
With respect to oil tanker traffic, it is important to remember that there has been an exclusion zone off the west coast of British Columbia since 1988. That exclusion zone, which is closely monitored and strictly enforced, makes sure that no oil tanker traffic comes down the inside passage. What is more, oil tanker traffic cannot come within 25 to 80 miles off the west coast depending on where it is.
That exclusion zone is in place. It is going to stay in place. We are not going to change it.
