Mr. Speaker, I will tell the House who does think it is a great deal, and that is Donald Trump. He is very happy.
The Prime Minister said he would not give in to steel or aluminum quotas, but guess what. He did. The so-called meaningful “surge” clause means that Trump gets to decide how much Canadian steel or aluminum is too much, and if Canadians suffer or if jobs are lost, oh well, too bad, because guess what: the Liberals signed away our ability to retaliate. This was a once-in-a-generation opportunity to get this right, and they blew it.
Why will the Prime Minister not admit that he failed Canadians again?
