Vote

Yea.

Rationale

C-79 makes all legislative changes required to ratify CPTPP. The CPTPP will benefit a wide range of sectors and industries across Canada, from beef and barley to forestry products and seafood. From making our machinery, equipment and business services more competitive, to protecting and preserving our unique culture, we are improving market access for Canadian business and have secured a better deal for Canadians.

Passed.
