Thank you for the question, Mr. Casey. We certainly appreciate your support and the support of your colleagues, as I said at the outset.
The projects fall into two sets of categories, and certainly the ones you're referring to from 2010 were more of the trade-enabling infrastructure as opposed to the safety and security projects that are funded out of the ACAP program, for example.
My understanding is that those investments that were made in 2010 at airports throughout Atlantic Canada were quite successful in supporting those airports' economic activities. They included runway extensions that have led to new cargo services, for example, in British Columbia. Equipment is being put in St. John's, Newfoundland, not one of the six airports but still under that funding, that's allowing the airport to offer greater reliability in tough weather. Greater reliability means you can be more certain you're going to be able to get to Newfoundland on time, and so businesses and conferences will be more likely to host there. Those investments have yielded great outcomes.
On the safety and security side, you don't always see what results from that, but airports are highly capital-intensive. You don't just build a runway and a building once. You have to maintain them. Safety and security are always our number one priority, and so even though you can't always see what those investments result in, we have a very safe, secure air transport system in this country, and we need the funds to help us keep it that way.
