Mr. Speaker, I commend my colleague from Rimouski-Neigette—Témiscouata—Les Basques on his speech. I very much appreciate that he takes the time to go over every agreement.

At the beginning of his speech he said that the Conservatives and Liberals support the trans-Pacific partnership without having conducted an economic study. That is not really true, however. The first thing we see on the website on consulting Canadians on the TPP is a link to the economic impact of Canada's potential membership in the TPP. That is the first thing we see. We are studying the issue. Consultations are under way to determine which questions need to be answered. That is why we have not done it yet. We are still studying it.

I just wanted to point that out to my colleague and tell him that these studies are ongoing, contrary to what he says.

Monsieur le Président, je félicite mon collègue de Rimouski-Neigette—Témiscouata—Les Basques pour son discours. J'apprécie beaucoup le fait qu'il prenne le temps d'étudier chaque accord.

Il a dit, au tout début de son intervention, que les conservateurs et les libéraux appuyaient le Partenariat transpacifique sans en avoir fait d'étude économique. Or ce n'est vraiment pas le cas. La première chose qu'on voit sur le site Web de la consultation auprès des Canadiens dans le cadre du Partenariat transpacifique, ce sont les répercussions économiques de la participation du Canada à l'accord du Partenariat transpacifique. C'est la première chose qu'on voit à ce sujet. Nous étudions cela. Des consultations sont justement en cours pour trouver les questions auxquelles nous devons répondre. C'est pour cela que nous ne l'avons pas encore fait. Nous l'étudions toujours.

Je voulais simplement présenter ce point à mon collègue et lui dire que nous menons ces études, contrairement à ce qu'il dit.
