Conservatives Motion for a Canada-U.S. Committee | Feb 4, 2021
Today, the House of Commons debated the following Conservative Opposition Day motion:
That, given that trade between Canada and the United States of America exceeds $1.5-billion per day, more than 300,000 persons normally cross the common border monthly, the two countries have enjoyed one of the world’s largest open trading blocs for the free movement of goods, services and people since 1989, the economic challenges caused by COVID-19, and the need for a serious plan for the economic recovery that recognizes the integration of the North American economy, the House appoint a special committee with the mandate to conduct hearings to examine and review all aspects of the economic relationship between Canada and the United States.
At a time when both our countries need to be focused on getting people back to work and restoring our ways of life post-COVID-19, this committee will get answers for Canadians and fight to secure our future.
Canadians need to get back to work. We need a plan to create jobs in every sector and every region in this country. Canada cannot afford another failure to plan.
