Mr. Speaker, first, that heavily touted exemption actually covers only 37 states, so it does not go very far.
Second, the member said that we are “following” this effort. “Following” does not do anything for Canadian businesses and jobs.
I would say that the ambassador in the United States is working hard to pursue this. That is a good thing, because the minister is not.
I would offer that in this circumstance we need a strong, united Canadian front to battle this legislation, which could be very damaging, and we need to do it now.
I am offering my help. Will the minister accept? If so, can we start today?
