Mr. Speaker, the minister should talk to the parliamentary budget officer. I think that conversation would be rather enlightening.
Yesterday, the parliamentary budget officer said that he might not be able to conduct an analysis of the new infrastructure bank.
It comes as no surprise that a Liberal initiative lacks transparency, but this only adds to our mistrust of the Liberals, who would rather come up with even more bureaucratic structures for their friends than approve job-creating projects across Canada.
Does the minister still plan to implement his bank or will he finally approve the thousands of projects for the small- and medium-sized municipalities that are still waiting for a green light?
