Ms. Joy Langan (Mission-Coquitlam):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Prime Minister. Last week in a move that will be devastating to the shakes and shingles industry in British Columbia, U.S. President Reagan renailed the industry with a punishing 20 per cent tariff.
Does the Prime Minister recognize the seriousness of this tariff and does he intend to capitulate to this attack,
December 13, 1988

or will he take action on behalf of the workers, the owners, and their families?
