Mr. Speaker, on Monday we learned that the federal government found $90 million to invest in the Canada History Centre while, according to the president of the Canadian Museums Association, museums need more money to maintain their collections and infrastructures.
It is hard to imagine how the centre will present some of the major events in Canadian history, events that affected peoples and Quebec as a whole. Think about the forced patriation of the Constitution, or the deportation of the Acadians.
Creating this centre without consulting the museum community is all the more cause for concern given that museums are largely underfunded.
Is showcasing chapters of our history that some of us would sooner forget the legacy the Prime Minister intends to leave behind?
