Mr. Speaker, today is the first-ever I Read Canadian Day. This initiative was created as a collaboration between the Canadian Children's Book Centre; children's author and my good friend Eric Walters; the Canadian Society of Children's Authors, Illustrators and Performers; and the Ontario Library Association.
The goal is simple. We want people to buy, borrow, read and talk about Canadian books, whether they are in English, French or an indigenous language. They can be in print, e-format and accessible formats.
We are challenging the nation to read Canadian for 15 minutes today and to share their experience at their library, their school, with their family and friends and on social media with #IReadCanadian.
This celebration of Canadian literature for young people will have a lifelong impact on Canadian youth and help transform an entire generation into lifelong learners.

Mr. Speaker, just a few days ago, we lost Christie Blatchford, one of Canada's most prominent writers and journalists.
Born in the town of Rouyn-Noranda in northwestern Quebec, Christie wrote for the Toronto Star, the Toronto Sun, the National Post and the Globe and Mail. She broke down barriers for women in sports reporting. She became an award-winning author and a war and courtroom correspondent.
Christie always wrote with a unique balance of toughness and tenderness. From time to time, I had the privilege of debating the news of the day with Christie on Newstalk 1010 radio. She was relentless in her pursuit of the truth and the facts that would help us understand the issues we face every day. I respected that in her, but I also respected her courage to unabashedly share her point of view, even when it was controversial.
Maybe that is why Newstalk 1010 morning host John Moore recently said, “There are certain figures you turn to, to make sense of the world around you. She was one of those.” I could not agree more.
It will be a lot harder making sense of the world around us without Christie.

I hate to interrupt the right hon. Prime Minister, but I am having a hard time hearing his answer.
I think we are ready. Please proceed. The right hon. Prime Minister.

Mr. Speaker, the illegal blockades have been in place for over two weeks. This is a national crisis. Commuters cannot get to work, producers cannot get their goods to market and people are losing their jobs.
The Prime Minister's weak leadership has forced Premier Moe to convene a special meeting of all the provincial premiers to discuss a way forward.
Why is the Prime Minister abdicating his job to the premiers?

I got up to point something out, but I realize that it was a historical reference. I will leave it at that; everyone knows why I got up.
The right hon. Prime Minister.

On reflecting on that, I just want to remind the hon. members that the rules state that members cannot do indirectly what they cannot do directly.

I will have to interrupt the member for a few moments.
I am having a really hard time hearing the member at the other end, and the noise is getting rather loud.
I will let the member continue with her question.
The hon. member has the floor.

Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister, ironically, now says that he does not order police officers around. That will be news to Mark Norman.
Today at the finance committee, I asked the finance minister, who is supposed to be in charge of the money, how much these illegal blockades are costing the Canadian economy every day. He did not know. Does the Prime Minister?

Mr. Speaker, then the Prime Minister, like his finance minister, does not know how much this illegal blockade is costing our Canadian economy in terms of dollars.
We know today that 1,500 rail workers have lost their jobs. They went home and looked their families in the eye and said, “I lost my job.”
Can the Prime Minister tell us how many Canadians across the country in total have lost their jobs so far as a result of these illegal blockages?

Mr. Speaker, Conservatives stand with the Wet'suwet'en people. When it comes to Coastal GasLink, the Wet'suwet'en elected chief and councillors support this project. We recognize that self-determination and economic independence are important steps—
Some hon. members: Oh, oh!

Order, please.
It is pretty bad when I cannot hear the question and the heckling is coming from both sides.
The hon. member will please continue.

Mr. Speaker, we recognize that self-determination and economic independence are important steps on the path to reconciliation.
Can the Prime Minister explain how allowing activists to block the independent decision-making power of indigenous Canadians supports reconciliation?
