Mr. Speaker, New Democrats are, of course, supportive of the work that was done at committee and will support the bill at this reading stage.
My question really goes to the transportation of goods. There were a lot of conversations at the committee about the transportation of goods to be be opened up by this legislation but which are not approved in Canada. Of course, we had concerns for Canadian communities in the areas of public health, public safety, and the environment. I wonder if the hon. parliamentary secretary could share with us some of the assurances he received from Health Canada and Environment Canada on the fact that Canadian communities will be protected when these goods are being transported.
