Madam Speaker, that is exactly what is happening.
The softwood lumber action plan comprised funding specifically targeted at helping affected workers. This included, for example, $9.5 million for a work-sharing program for employees affected by the temporary reduction in business activities, and $80 million for labour market development agreements to help workers upgrade their skills and transition to new opportunities.
Furthermore this government allocated, through budget 2019, over $250 million in additional funds to the action plan programs to help producers tap into new markets and diversify production.
As I indicated, the Prime Minister and the minister are very much aware of the issue, and the Liberals are taking proactive measures to minimize the negative impact and make sure our workers and communities are being well served.
