International Trade committee That's very good. Keeping on the consultation theme, I'm going to go to Angelo from Unifor. Between February 2017 and November 30, 2018, there were 1,245 stakeholder engagements with first nations, unions, businesses, organizations, etc. How important was that consultation du
International Trade committee Can you clarify that lack of consultation?
International Trade committee Are you talking about the previous government, just for clarification?

International Trade committee Yes. It's Bill C-101 about the surge, the safeguards.
International Trade committee Thank you very much to all our witnesses for coming in today. I'll start with Mathew from the Canadian manufacturers association. You made a fairly powerful statement.

International Trade committee Some of the people early on had suggested settling for a quota. As well, the Ford government actually even stated that we should have removed our counter-tariffs as some kind of gesture to the United States that.... I don't know.
