Madam Speaker, the Teck project is very important, and it is good for the Canadian economy. It represents over $20 billion in investments and 7,000 jobs that Canada needs.
Unfortunately, the government is taking its sweet time. People have been working on this project for 10 years. Everything has been done properly every step of the way. The proponents have the support of the 14 first nations directly affected by the project. All of the approvals have been given by the provincial government and the federal government. Basically, everything is ready except for the Liberal government.
Why is the Liberal government once again standing in the way of developing Canada's natural resources?
