Mr. Speaker, I want to congratulate the member for Annapolis Valley-Hants for his thoughtful comments and remarks.
It is very difficult for a member to talk about his or her own work but other members can. I would like to let the hon. member's constituents know that he has been one of the leading spokesmen in this place about family, children and has been an advocate on behalf of the CAPC initiative. He shared that experience and expertise within his riding with other members so that they could see the valuable contribution that makes to the strengthening of our families and children. I congratulate him on the excellent work he has done on behalf of this place.
My question has to do with the infrastructure program. I concur with the member that it has been helpful. Would the member care to elaborate a little on the initial infrastructure program that the government had and the contribution it made to his area? Maybe he could give some ideas on the specific things that might be of benefit to his constituency.
