Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the hon. member for his speech, even though I am still trying to understand some things about the bill.
The finance minister said that everything in Bill C-45 can be found in the budget.
When we received the information on this bill—and there has been a lot of publicity on this issue—we asked where in the budget the references to navigable waters could be found. We were told to refer to page 282 of the budget, which indicates that $37 million in savings have been planned at Transport Canada.
From this, we were supposed to understand what our colleague was explaining to us about all the advantages and effects of this bill. But, on the contrary, what we are seeing are the negative effects it will have on environmental protection.
Can the hon. member tell me where in the budget we can find an explanation for everything he has said about our waterways?
