Mr. Iain Angus (Thunder Bay-Atikokan):
Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Deputy Prime Minister, in the absence of the Minister of Transport and the Minister responsible for the Canadian Wheat Board. The Deputy Prime Minister will know that those two Ministers met with officials from the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway industry approximately three weeks ago. They offered a plan of action to the Government to deal with the current crisis in the movement of grain and other products from the West through Thunder Bay, the Great Lakes, and the St. Lawrence Seaway.
Is the Deputy Prime Minister prepared to advise the House and the thousands of men and women who are affected along the system what action the Government is now prepared to take?
Subtopic: MOVEMENT OF GRAIN THROUGH ST. LAWRENCE SEAWAY
