Mr. Speaker, the ongoing blockades by activists continue to hurt ordinary Canadians. Last week the Prime Minister said he hoped we will see positive developments. The public safety minister was hopeful the police would help restore rail shipments. The Liberals repeatedly speak of their hope that the protests will be resolved peacefully, yet we see protesters starting fires in front of moving trains.
Hope is a wonderful sentiment, but hope is not a management tool. When will the blockades finally come down and stay down?
