Mr. Speaker, I listened closely to the speech given earlier by my colleague, the hon. member for Portneuf—Jacques-Cartier, who, like me, comes from Quebec.
Today, we are debating the bill on the CPTPP at third reading stage.
The member spoke at length about the USMCA during his speech while only occasionally touching on the subject of Bill C-79.
Would he be willing to speak to the tremendous benefits of the cultural exemption negotiated as part of the CPTPP? Side agreements were reached with each of the agreement's signatory countries.
Does my hon. colleague realize that this represents 650,000 very good jobs in Canada?
