Mr. Speaker, I would like to offer a little reminder about the softwood lumber crisis.

The Conservatives put the agreement in place in 2006, and in 2008 we had the forestry crisis. That crisis happened after the Conservatives’ agreement with the Americans was implemented. It was a bad agreement that they signed in a hurry to get rid of the issue without solving the problem. That is what has brought us to where we are today.

In addition, the member said we have not created jobs. In fact, over 300,000 new jobs have been created in the last year. That may be why the Conservatives were unsuccessful as a government: they do not see the difference between 300,000 and a negative number.

Monsieur le Président, je veux faire un petit rappel concernant la crise du bois d'oeuvre.

En 2006, les conservateurs ont mis l'accord en place, et en 2008, il y a eu la crise forestière. Celle-ci a donc eu lieu après la mise en oeuvre de l'accord des conservateurs avec les Américains. C'était un mauvais accord qu'ils ont fait rapidement pour se débarrasser du dossier sans régler le problème. C'est ce qui nous a menés où nous en sommes aujourd'hui.

Par ailleurs, le député a dit que nous n'avons pas créé d'emplois. Or, depuis un an, plus de 300 000 nouveaux emplois ont été créés. C'est peut-être pour cela que les conservateurs n'ont pas réussi en tant que gouvernement: ils ne voient pas de différence entre 300 000 et un nombre négatif.
