I appreciate your question, and I want to be very clear. I presented estimates from my department for Infrastructure Canada before Parliament. I am accountable for that.
I was advised, recommended by my officials, to use the border infrastructure fund as a vehicle with which we could move expeditiously to get these programs funded. Most of the infrastructure programs were done over seven years. All the other stimulus were done over two. For this we had 15 months from start to finish, so we had to move expeditiously. It was done on a recommendation from the public service.
Having said that, we topped the fund up by $50 million. I think the Auditor General's observation is fair that we could have put in those estimates that $50 million of the money was potentially going towards the G-8--
