Mr. Ernie Epp (Thunder Bay-Nipigon):
Mr. Speaker, my supplementary question is directed to the Prime Minister. What can he tell the shipping industry and the shipbuilders of this country who have been expecting to achieve something against the discriminatory pressures of American law, particularly under the Jones Act provisions, which will force the import into Canada of Alaskan crude oil in Canadian tankers? What has he to say to the comfort of the maritime industries of Canada, given the failure in the face of the American shipping lobby?
