Harper Cons insult NL yet again, reneging on EU trade deal
I posed the following questions today (May 27th) during Question Period in the House of Commons.
Actually, Mr. Speaker, it is that government with its complete intransigence, disrespect and refusal to match its words with actions that is putting Canada's trade deals at risk.
The Conservatives promised my province of Newfoundland and Labrador a fund for fisheries marketing and research in exchange for giving up local fish processing requirements.
Then they changed the rules mid-game and reneged on their promise.
Will the Conservatives finally live up to their word, and give Newfoundland and Labrador the transition fund we were promised?
