And of the amendment of Mr. O'Toole (Durham), seconded by Mr. Carrie (Oshawa), — That the motion be amended by deleting all the words after the word “That” and substituting the following:
“the House decline to give second reading to Bill C-101, An Act to amend the Customs Tariff and the Canadian International Trade Act, because it fails to:
(a) take into consideration regional disparities in industry needs, specifically, that domestic producers only minimally supply certain steel products to British Columbia, Quebec, and Newfoundland and Labrador;
