Have you read it?

Mr. Speaker, I congratulate the hon. member on the first part of her speech. It was a good speech and her comments expressed the seriousness of the situation in British Columbia.

I have met with the minister on many occasions on this issue as well as with other officials in British Columbia. I have also met with the forestry association. I am very concerned. We want to work together. It is wrong for the member to say that I have not met with the minister.

I asked her colleagues if they had read the report and I will ask the hon. member the same question. I have met with the minister. I understand the seriousness of the situation. We are looking at a long term plan. The federal government has invested $40 million. Has the hon. member read the report? If so, can she tell me what is in it?

Forestry December 13th, 2004

That is right, you did not. You admit it.

Forestry December 13th, 2004

When did you?

Forestry December 13th, 2004

That is not what I said.

Forestry December 13th, 2004

Not on one occasion did you call me.
