My hon. friend Stan says that it is my minister's. Why would that change anything? After all, my hon. friend refers quite properly to a very serious problem in respect to the steel industry. We have been working with the United States and I think quite productively to protect the interests of Canadian steel producers which are achieving a larger market share in specialized areas of the American market than before.
The best way that we can help the steel producers in Canada or any other industry is by producing low inflation. We have the lowest inflation rate in 30 years. We have the lowest interest rates in 20 years. We have the highest projected employment growth rate in 1993-94 of any industrialized country in the world. That is the way we help Canadian workers, by creating durable long term jobs.
