Statements in the House

Infrastructure June 6th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, again, that is simply incorrect. We are making record investments in infrastructure.

In addition to those record investments, over the next decade we will spend within our means. Within the year, we will balance the budget.

Our new building Canada plan is open for business. Applications are already being received. One transit project in Edmonton has already been approved. I will take that to the bank any day.

Infrastructure June 6th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, in fact, our Conservative government is making record investments in infrastructure, the longest and the largest infrastructure plan in Canada's history, of over $53 billion over the next 10 years. Already our government has invested over $7 billion specifically in public transit.

With respect to a national transit plan, we very much believe in empowering the municipalities to identify their own transit priorities. We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach.

Employment June 6th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, across this land Canadians are seeing construction projects unfold in their communities this spring with jobs being created as a result. Across this land municipalities are identifying infrastructure project priorities and submitting them to the new building Canada plan. Across this land the Liberals continue to spread misinformation.

Infrastructure May 30th, 2014

As I explained earlier, Mr. Speaker, the process is in place. All the information that municipalities, that provinces, require is on the Infrastructure Canada website.

The new Building Canada plan is open for business. In fact, many municipalities are already identifying their infrastructure project priorities, and just days ago we announced funding for an important transit project in Edmonton. We are getting the job done.

Infrastructure May 30th, 2014

On the contrary, Mr. Speaker, a new Building Canada plan is open for business. All the information the provinces and the territories require is all available on the website.

The process with respect to applications, with respect to provinces identifying project priorities, is exactly the same as it was under the original Building Canada plan, which has existed for the past seven years.

Questions Passed as Orders for Returns May 26th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, I ask that the remaining questions be allowed to stand.

Questions Passed as Orders for Returns May 26th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, furthermore, if Questions Nos. 437-440, 448-451, 455, 461, 463, 465-467 and 469 could be made orders for returns, these returns would be tabled immediately.

Questions on the Order Paper May 26th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, the following questions will be answered today: Questions Nos. 436, 443, 445, 453, 462, 464; as well as a revised response to Question No. 444, initially tabled on May 15, 2014.

Committees of the House May 26th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, I move:

That the debate be now adjourned.

Infrastructure May 16th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, what I find passing strange is that members of the NDP stand up in this place and inquire about and advocate for projects under a funding program that they vote against. What I can say is that this particular project has been submitted. We will assess it very closely, and what I am encouraged about is that municipalities in Quebec and across this country understand that they have a strong partner in the federal government to meet their infrastructure priority needs.
