My concern is that the overall culture of manufacturing in Canada has been treated poorly over the last number of decades, resulting in a massive decline not only in jobs but also in GDP contribution to the country. Now it's being trumpeted because it's needed. My concerns come in line with some of the investment happening.
I think of Connaught Labs, for example, which was the Canadian laboratory responsible for working on the polio cure and which dates back to 1913. It was [Technical difficulty—Editor] entity.
I think of Nemak. As you know, Mr. Minister, we invested in Nemak, a manufacturing facility here in Windsor, but the research and development are now going to Mexico, and public money that was announced by your government is now being used to produce for Mexico. The work is being moved there right now.
When we're doing some of these contracts and supply initiatives, what is being done to protect that investment to keep it in Canada, including the intellectual property and the investment in the machinery, so that when this is done we will continue to have that investment in Canada? Are those stipulations part of the deals?
