Mr. Speaker, thousands of VIA Rail and CN workers have already received layoff notices because of the rail blockade.
Throughout Quebec, companies of all sizes, including Resolute Forest Products, are telling us that they too will have to lay off employees. The government must take action. Dialogue does not consist of sending letters; it should be carried out face-to-face by the Prime Minister and the chiefs, nation to nation.
What real action will the government take so that on Monday morning the crisis is behind us?
