Mr. Speaker, there are obviously many questions about how things will play out in the United States over the next few years. We do not know yet.

As Canadians, our job is to engage with the people of Cuba and to work with them to help as much as we can. We have always done that, ever since the Cuban missile crisis, which lasted 13 days.

I do not know what the Americans will do. Our job is to do what is best for Canada and Cuba.

Monsieur le Président, on a évidemment beaucoup de questions à propos de la façon dont se dérouleront les choses aux États-Unis au cours des prochaines années. On ne le sait pas encore.

En tant que Canadiens, notre travail est de s'engager auprès du peuple de Cuba et de travailler avec lui pour l'aider autant qu'on le peut. On l'a toujours fait, et ce, depuis la crise des missiles de Cuba, qui a duré 13 jours.

Je ne sais pas ce que feront les Américains. Notre travail, c'est de faire ce qu'il y a de mieux pour le Canada et pour Cuba.
