Hon. Michael Wilson (Minister of Industry, Science and Technology and Minister for International Trade):
Madam Speaker, the hon. member is well aware of the efforts this government has gone to in order to seek the support of the United States steel industry, the United States unions and the United States administration.

Unfortunately at this point in time they are not willing to discuss this matter. It is something we continue to press with the administration at the government level. We have also asked the companies and the unions at every opportunity they can to propose the same sort of discussion and dialogue with their counterparts.
I am hopeful once we get through the trade remedy actions that are under way we can see some movement in this file.
