Forest products industry, Forestry, Opposition motions, Softwood lumber industry, Trade agreements

Accords commerciaux, Foresterie, Industrie des produits forestiers

Madam Speaker, my friend from Dauphin—Swan River—Neepawa has given an excellent summary of the forestry industry and how it works. He talked about his 300 acres, which I assume used to be 600 acres before it was worked on. With all this great understanding of the forestry industry, which is a huge part of my riding as well in the Laurentians, as we have tens of thousands of kilometres of forested lands, why is he supporting a motion that calls for an agreement now instead of a good agreement when we can get one?

Madame la Présidente, mon collègue de Dauphin—Swan River—Neepawa a présenté un excellent sommaire de l'industrie forestière et de son fonctionnement. Il a parlé de ses 300 acres — qui j'imagine étaient 600 acres avant la coupe. Il comprend très bien l'industrie forestière qui occupe aussi une énorme partie de ma circonscription dans les Laurentides, puisque nous avons des dizaines de milliers de kilomètres de terres forestières. Pourquoi donc appuie-t-il une motion qui demande un accord maintenant s'il est possible de demander un bon accord?
