Mr. Edward Broadbent (Oshawa-Whitby):
Mr. Speaker, I rise to move a motion under Standing Order 43. This motion arises out of the revelation yesterday that the United States government is planning to apply countervailing duties against tires exported to the United States by the Michelin Tire Company of Canada. Such action could lead not only to a further major disruption of the Canadian tire industry in central Canada by causing Michelin to dump all their tires on the domestic market but, beyond that, to the complete undermining of the Department of Regional Economic Expansion's programs in eastern Canada and elsewhere, whose success is largely dependent on the availability of the U.S. export market.
Subtopic: IMPOSITION BY UNITED STATES OF COUNTERVAILING
Sub-subtopic: DUTY ON MICHELIN TIRES-REQUEST FOR UNANIMOUS CONSENT TO MOVE MOTION UNDER S.O. 43
