Mr. Speaker, today byelections are being held in six ridings across the country. In two of those ridings I am surprised the Liberals have the nerve to run candidates.
Excess power from Churchill Falls sells in the U.S. for $800 million a year, but Labrador and Newfoundland gets only $20 million of it. The trans-Labrador highway is in a deplorable state and needs $75 million to rebuild it. That is less than 10 per cent of the money lost every year due to Liberal inaction.
In Etobicoke North the Liberals cancelled the Pearson development contract which cost metro Toronto ridings like Etobicoke North 1,140 airport jobs, 560 direct off airport jobs and 3,000 indirect jobs as well as 14,000 person years of construction work.
The voters have a chance to set things right. The Liberals should hang their heads in shame and the voters in Labrador and Etobicoke North should hang the Liberals out to dry.
