I'd just like to say from my city's point of view--which is Surrey--that we have been very actively involved in this plan and working really hard, and probably have met most of our deadlines, but we really support our neighbours being able to do the same thing. You'd be hard-pressed to drive through Surrey without being stopped by construction somewhere or another and people working. As a local politician, you see the joy of the people working and share the frustration of trying to get someplace because it is so busy. It's a great atmosphere and it has worked extremely well.
We and many of our counterparts in the province definitely support the people who haven't been able to finish. This stimulus program has really done a lot. It's got people working, it's built up some pride, and it's got some projects off the ground. It's been very positive.
I would like to say that those of us who have been working well with it really support the other communities that haven't quite been able to meet the deadlines, just to have the flexibility to be able to do this.
