December 13, 1988 (34th Parliament, 1st Session)

PC

John Carnell Crosbie (Minister for International Trade)

Progressive Conservative

Mr. Crosbie:

I agree with the Hon. Member that this is a deplorable decision. It was a decision that is damaging to both the Canadian and the U.S. industries, and it is a great pity that President Reagan apparently was not advised so that he did away with the shakes and shingles action as he could have done. He did, however, reduce, as the Hon. Member knows, the amount of the additional duties that are being levied. I suppose we should be thankful for that, but this decision is harmful to the industries in both countries.
