Mr. Speaker, I listened carefully to my colleague's speech.
Of course, we generally support this trade facilitation agreement, but we very seldom have unanimity in the House. This could be one way to help support SMEs.
The three parties all agreed that another way to help small and medium-sized businesses was to cut their taxes, although they did not agree on how quickly to do it. Some members wanted to cut taxes quickly, while others wanted to implement the cuts more gradually.
Given that most of the agreement's articles and rules are already in place, does the federal government plan to do more?
Is the government trying to do more to really help small and medium-sized businesses to expand and export internationally, for example by putting money back in their pockets?
