Mr. Speaker, many businesses rely heavily on skilled foreign workers who have already been recruited to keep them afloat.
My riding is on the U.S. border. The small businesses in my riding have said that, if they do not go out of business, they are going to transfer their operations to the United States.
When will this government realize that these workers are essential to the survival of these businesses? When does the minister plan to again accept these skilled workers into the country to help with our economic recovery?
