Mr. Speaker, I want to thank my hon. colleague for her great efforts in French.
I thank the hon. member for Northumberland—Peterborough South for promoting such an important file.
Our government understands the importance of the forestry sector and is providing $867 million through the softwood lumber action plan due to unfair duties levied by the U.S.
I also attended the most recent PaperWeek conference in Montreal, where I met with industry professionals to exchange ideas and discuss new technologies.
We will take steps to ensure the pulp and paper industry and the forest sector at large continue to thrive.
