Mr. Speaker, on December 10, 1999, I asked the environment minister to clarify the government's position on the issue of sewage and water treatment in Canada. He replied:
—that if the member's party wants to spend an extra $400 to $600 million in one Canadian city for something that has no environmental advantage, go ahead and propose it. We see nothing in this House but increased expenditure—
I wonder if, in the wake of Waterton, the minister will stand by those words and say that there is no sewage or water problem facing Canadian municipalities.
