Mr. Speaker, last week, the U.S. administration proposed the inclusion of buy American provisions as part of their draft infrastructure funding proposal.
Our government moved quickly on the matter, raising concerns with the American administration to defend Canadian workers and businesses.

Open bilateral trading arrangements are vital to SMEs on both sides of the border. CFIB is pleased to see the Canadian government moving quickly on this matter....
Would the hard-working Minister of International Trade explain why the government is raising such strong concerns with the proposed legislation?
