Madam Speaker, New Flyer Industries in Transcona is a world-class manufacturer of electric and diesel buses. Most of its sales go to the United States and the Buy American policy has forced it to move more jobs to the U.S. It is not alone. This is happening to workers and companies across Canada.
We have heard that Mexico got some relief from Buy American in the new NAFTA. Can the minister explain what efforts, if any, Canada made to protect Canadian jobs from Buy American and why they did not succeed?
