Mr. Speaker, the Minister of Transport's earlier response regarding funding for the Port of Québec was vague to say the least.
The port is not the only organization in Quebec City waiting for news from this government. There is also the National Optics Institute, which is a very important institute that generates jobs. Nearly 4,000 jobs have been generated by this centre for development and applied research.
If the port has to wait, will the NOI, which needs its funding by March 31, get a positive response from this government?
