Mr. Speaker, after their gross mishandling of the Petronas decision, the Conservatives are now saying that more clarity is needed in the Investment Canada Act. This is just days after they stated emphatically that no more clarity was needed at all. This is why investors and so many others are losing confidence in the government. The Conservatives just seem to be confused and improvising; but now that they have admitted that the NDP was right all along and clarity is needed, there are serious concerns about CNOOC, and the deadline is looming.
Will the Conservatives put in place new rules before the decision on the CNOOC takeover of Nexen? Canadians deserve that.
