Madam Speaker, first of all, the dairy sector and the steel sector both got the kind of protection I was talking about earlier.
I talked about the history of international relations within various organizations, such as customs unions and free trade zones. The steel industry got this measure; why not the aluminum industry? Why are people saying there is an emergency now that was not there before?
The urgency of the situation is ramping up for two reasons. We are in a vicious cycle. I have the numbers to prove it, which I shared earlier in my speech. Chinese aluminum dumping is a threat to Quebec aluminum because aluminum parts are being made in Mexico. The trade agreement endorses that.
If we let this slide, that could eventually mean a death sentence for the cleanest aluminum in the world, which is from Quebec.
