Tracey stands up to protect the Canadian steel industry
June 21st, 2017 - 4:02pm
Ms. Tracey Ramsey (Essex, NDP):
Mr. Speaker, last week, trade committee submitted a report on the Canadian steel in the industry and next week the all-party steel caucus will meet officials in Washington.
In the report the NDP recommends that the Liberals implement measures to encourage the use of Canadian steel in infrastructure projects and government contracts.
We also recommend that the government defend our ability to promote the use of Canadian steel when negotiating trade agreements like NAFTA.
Will the Liberals implement our recommendations to protect our Canadian steel industry before they renegotiate NAFTA?
