Business of Supply

Pursuant to Order made Monday, October 17, 2016, the House proceeded to the taking of the deferred recorded division on the motion of Mr. Ritz (Battlefords—Lloydminster), seconded by Mrs. McLeod (Kamloops—Thompson—Cariboo), — That, recognizing that the Prime Minister and the Minister of International Trade promised 400,000 Canadian forestry workers a framework agreement on softwood lumber exports with the Obama Administration by mid-June, 2016, recognizing the government’s failure to meet that deadline and their subsequent failure to negotiate a final agreement before the expiry of the last trade agreement on October 12, 2016, and given that many high-quality, well-paying jobs in the forestry sector are now at risk due to the government’s lack of action, the House call upon the government to stop delaying and take all necessary steps to prevent a trade war that will threaten the livelihood of Canadian workers and communities.

The question was put on the motion and it was negatived on the following division:
