Mr. Speaker, I was asking for an infrastructure program. This is a joke.
Canada's celebration and Confederation do not belong to the Conservative Party. The funds that were announced a few days ago have a deadline to apply in just a few days from now. I could not find that in the budget, nor could I find a dollar amount.
What is worse is that the member for Chatham-Kent—Essex says to apply to his office for help, not to the government's offices and not to city hall. That is disgraceful. What sort of an inside track is being discussed here? Why is this pork barrelling not described as such?
The Conservative government is playing politics with Confederation, hurting cities in this country, and this fund is a disgrace.
