Madam Speaker, I do not see it quite the same way as the member does. I agree that protecting workers is very important, but I see these changes permitting Air Canada to bring in not necessarily fewer workers but possibly more workers, because it can leave the no-longer-existent Montreal urban community, go off the Island of Montreal, and go outside of Winnipeg. It can go to other parts of the provinces and do the maintenance.

The aircraft Air Canada is purchasing, the C Series, is not manufactured on the Island of Montreal but very close. These purchases create jobs. The aviation industry creates jobs. The ability to have market flexibility allows the airline to remain competitive, which would guarantee the 25,000 jobs at the airline and not just a few.

Madame la Présidente, je ne vois pas les choses de la même façon que la députée. Je conviens avec elle qu'il faut protéger les travailleurs, mais, selon moi, ces changements n'entraîneront pas nécessairement une diminution du nombre de travailleurs canadiens, mais peut-être une augmentation, parce que la société Air Canada ne sera pas limitée à la Communauté urbaine de Montréal, qui n'existe plus, et pourra s'installer ailleurs que sur l'île de Montréal et en dehors de Winnipeg. Elle pourra effectuer ses travaux d'entretien ailleurs dans ces provinces.

Les appareils C Series qu'achète Air Canada ne sont pas fabriqués sur l'île de Montréal, mais très près. Ces achats permettent de créer des emplois. L'industrie aérienne crée des emplois. La latitude dont dispose le transporteur aérien sur le marché lui permet de demeurer concurrentiel, ce qui ne garantit pas seulement quelques emplois, mais les 25 000 emplois de la société.
