Mr. Speaker, nowhere in the Investment Canada Act is there reference to flipping a coin at midnight on a Friday night, after leading a company to believe it is going to be accepted. After promising a new net benefit test for two years, Conservatives may or may not actually do their work, creating total uncertainty. Markets want certainty. Canadians want to have a say.
The Calgary Chamber of Commerce says the NDP is right. The Globe and Mail and The Wall Street Journal say the NDP is right. The Conservatives are keeping Canadians in the dark with this irresponsible way of decision-making.
Will there be changes to the net benefit test before the Nexen deadline on November 9?
