Mr. Rod Murphy (Churchill):
Madam Speaker, yesterday the government used its majority to pass the North American free trade agreement in the House of Commons. Now it is up to the people of Canada to stop NAFTA.
May 28, 1993
In the next federal election Canadians will have a choice. If they want the free trade agreement and NAFTA they can vote for the Conservatives. If they believe that the free trade agreement and NAFTA must be stopped they know that the New Democratic Party will not allow these fundamentally flawed agreements to continue. If they want confusion they can support the Liberals who will not promise to kill the free trade agreement, who will not promise to stop NAFTA if there are no changes and who, even if they achieve their five desired changes to NAFTA, would still be supporting the sell-out of Canada.
The Liberal leader wants it both ways, he wants the financial support of big business and the votes of ordinary Canadians. However he cannot have it both ways. The Liberals need to tell Canadians now that they will stop NAFTA and they will kill the free trade agreement. Nothing else will save Canada, save Canadian jobs and save Canadian communities.
