Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleagues for the usual reception.
On Saturday I met with a group of truckers in Nova Scotia concerning Highway 104. They were protesting the diversion of $26 million in funds from the federal-provincial agreement to upgrade the highway for safety reasons among others and to encourage interprovincial trade.
My question is for the Prime Minister. Given the fact that this diversion has been denounced by the auditor general of Nova Scotia as not conforming to the agreement signed between both governments, will the Prime Minister rein in his minister of public works so that he stops sending money to his own riding at the detriment of the safety of the highways in Nova Scotia?
