Mr. Speaker, I have a question that is actually relevant to Canadians right now. My question is for the Minister of Industry.
In rural ridings like mine of Simcoe—Grey the tourism industry is offering enormous potential for economic prosperity and for opportunities for future generations. The challenge for smaller municipalities is their inability to develop the necessary infrastructure to accelerate growth in this critical industry.
Would the minister tell the House what our government is doing to assist rural communities like mine in developing their tourism base?
