Mr. Speaker, the Aluminium Association of Canada is not the workers. It is mostly Rio Tinto.
It does not matter to foreign multinationals like Rio Tinto whether they make aluminum in India or China instead of Quebec. As long as they can make money and supply the U.S. market via Mexico, they are happy. That does not help Quebec. That does help my region. That does not help employ our workers.
Why is the government refusing to provide the same protection to aluminum workers as it does to steel workers?
