Summer committee meeting on softwood lumber ‘waste of time and money,’ says Liberal MP

Linda Lapointe says the committee just finished a report on the topic in June.

Liberal MPs on the House Trade Committee, including, from right, Linda Lapointe, Steven McKinnon, and Peter Fonseca, voted down a Conservative motion to call on the government to establish a national roundtable to discuss Canada's softwood lumber negotiations with the U.S. Mr. Fonseca said it would only duplicate the efforts of the public servants negotiating the deal.
