Mr. Speaker, I guess the question is why the previous government routinely shut out thousands of groups every year that it did not fund.
The member speaks of autism. I want to point out that the Autism Resource Centre in Moncton will receive $29,000 this year from this government. Previously it got only $9,000.
This government is stepping up to the plate, helping groups that need the help and, more important, making sure students get the work experience that they need to succeed.
