Progressive Conservative

Hon. Michael Wilson (Minister of Industry, Science and Technology and Minister for International TVade):

Madam Speaker, my hon. friend delights in talking about failures. Let us talk about the successes. Let us talk about the fact that agrifood exports are 67 per cent higher under the free trade agreement than was the case before 1989.
Let us talk about the export value of beef cuts being up 127 per cent under the free trade agreement. Let us also talk about the five panel decisions that came down in favour of Canada in the agrifood sector.
These are the things that my hon. friend will never talk about because he does not like success.
