moved for leave to introduce Bill C-305, An Act to establish a National Public Transit Strategy.
Mr. Speaker, I move, seconded by the member for Vaudreuil-Soulanges, to introduce a bill to establish a national public transit strategy for Canada.
I rise today to introduce this bill, which would establish a national public transit strategy.
The strategy would secure a permanent federal investment plan in innovation research. It would provide federal leadership in working with all levels of government to coordinate planning. This strategy would get Canada moving in line with other G8 nations by helping to provide public transit that is fast, accessible and affordable to all Canadians.
This would help move Canada forward.
