Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech.
I think he hit the nail on the head. We know that $15 billion should have gone to every municipality in Canada, including Drummondville and other municipalities in my colleague's riding, and that this money will instead be transferred to the infrastructure bank, whose only purpose is to make foreigner investors, billionaires, even richer.
How does the hon. member feel about that? Does he really think the biggest city in his riding, Drummondville, stands a chance of getting any of this money? Has Drummondville ever undertake a project worth over $100 million that was federally funded?
We have already been told that projects under $100 million will not be accepted. There is even talk about a $500 million minimum.
Does the hon. member really think that Drummondville could have access to this program, this bank, for help?
