Madam Speaker, that is a very important question for probably every community in Canada.
I could mention my own community, where millions of dollars are being spent by steel companies to move very heavy loads by truck from the east coast ports and so on. These would normally travel by rail.
Furthermore, costs in the area of $50 million a month are being spent to deliver finished products from the plants to customers.
This is a huge problem that needs to be solved quickly, but not in the manner that is being proposed by the other side.
