Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister for the Federal Economic Development Initiative for Northern Ontario, FedNor.
The record shows that I have been asking for a straight answer on FedNor from the government in numerous parliamentary debates and committee hearings.
The usual Conservative spin over substance has been the sad response. The government's own records show that the funding for FedNor was cut by $6.4 million in the 2006 budget but it continues to deny the facts.
Will the minister now commit to restore FedNor's funding to $51.9 million per year, no spin, yes or no?
