Mr. Speaker, in their most recent budget, the Conservatives have abandoned the regions.
My riding has a desperate need for infrastructure, particularly an operational regional airport, to help its economic development, create jobs and maintain existing jobs.
In April, when he visited Sherbrooke for a photo op, the Prime Minister himself acknowledged the importance of this project for our region. Yet, the Conservatives have remained silent since that time.
Is the Sherbrooke airport still an important infrastructure project for the Conservative government?
