Madam Speaker, I keep hearing all these Conservatives get up and talk about how great their softwood lumber agreement was in 2006. The problem with it was that it was not great. Virtually everybody at the time was opposed to it. They gave $1 billion to the American industry and not to the Canadian industry, and it directly resulted in the lumber crisis of 2008.

I was wondering what planet he was on with respect to this topic.

Madame la Présidente, les conservateurs viennent nous dire les uns après les autres à quel point leur entente sur le bois d'oeuvre de 2006 était extraordinaire. La réalité, c'est qu'elle ne l'était pas. Presque tout le monde, à l'époque, s'opposait à cette entente. Ils ont donné un milliard de dollars à l'industrie américaine plutôt qu'à l'industrie canadienne, ce qui a mené à la crise du bois d'oeuvre de 2008.

Je me demande sur quelle planète ils vivent pour affirmer de telles choses.
