Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the Auditor General for her analysis of the infrastructure program.
She said, “I would say I would give the government high marks for how they managed” this program.
She said, “I think officials deserve congratulations for rolling out such a major program quickly, without resorting to throwing [any] regulations or safeguards out”.
This program went out the door. It created hundreds of thousands of jobs in every part of this country. We are being fair and reasonable with the municipalities, but we can thank the finance minister , the former infrastructure minister and the government for making sure that this recovery has stayed in place.
