Mr. Speaker, if we have a propane shortage in the middle of winter, Canada will have some serious problems.
The government is doing nothing to reassure the 1,000 VIA Rail workers, the 450 CN workers and the 325 workers in Lac-Mégantic. It is doing nothing for the farmers and restaurant owners who are facing propane rationing.
Unlike the Liberal Prime Minister, who is choosing to ignore the disastrous impact of the blockades, the Quebec premier has responded, saying that an ultimatum is needed. He says we need to take action, and it must be in coordination with every province at the same time.
After such weak leadership yesterday, when will the Prime Minister acknowledge that his lack of leadership could cause thousands of job losses in Canada?
