Mr. Speaker, our natural resources sector plays a vital role in our economy. Projects such as the Keystone XL pipeline support 140,000 jobs for Canadians. While our government supports our natural resources sector, the NDP's plan for this sector is to send some of its senior NDP MPs to Washington to lobby against creating good Canadian jobs.
Our government is focused on jobs and economic growth, and that is why we are opening new markets for our natural resources sector. On the other hand, the NDP is focused on implementing a $21 billion job-killing carbon tax that would ruin employment opportunities in our natural resources sector. Our government will keep fighting the NDP's job-killing carbon tax and we will remain focused on what matters to Canadians: jobs and economic growth.
