Mr. Speaker, I can assure you and all members of the House that it certainly is not me who would spread misinformation.
What I can tell the House is that our decision to include indigenous participation in this important offshore fishery was a historic decision. The previous Conservative government had a process in 2014-15 to add a new entrant to this fishery as well. Its process was very similar to the process that we initiated publicly in September. However, the Conservatives forgot to include indigenous people. We thought it was important to do so.
