Mr. Speaker, I want to thank my colleague for her speech.
It is interesting that the government is now saying that this bill is important and is part of its agenda. To me, this is not an agenda. It is panic.
After all this time, it is obvious that there is a problem at our borders, particularly when it comes to supporting the people who work there and fight against such products. There is also a problem when it comes to innovation because there is not enough money and there are a lot of these types of products.
The approach the government is taking right now is another problem. At the last minute, it says this is a priority. At the end of the session, after almost eight years in government, the Conservatives panic and this is suddenly a priority.
After three hours of debate, without amendment, without anything else, the government says that this bill is perfect as is.
Is there any proof that the Conservative government has a plan for our industry, for innovation, for technology and everything else? That is what this debate is about.
What is the government going to do to help our industry move forward and become very competitive in this world?
This is not a plan. It is panic.
