Mr. Ross Harvey (Edmonton East):
Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to present a petition signed by residents of Lethbridge and of the Crow's Nest communities in southern Alberta.
They point out to the House that if implemented, the North American free trade agreement will result in further restrictions being placed on the ability of Canada's federal, provincial and territorial governments now and in the future to assist Canadian industry, conserve Canadian natural resources for Canadian benefit and advance needed social programs.
For this among other reasons, the petitioners call upon this House to reject the proposed North American free trade agreement and to recommend to the government that it use the termination clause to end the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement.
