Mr. Speaker, instead of making grand statements, I invite the minister to reread the Canada-Quebec infrastructure agreement. It states that “Canada's role in any Project is limited to making a financial contribution, and that it will have no involvement in the implementation...or...operation. Canada is neither a decision-maker nor an administrator”.
The minister's election announcement about Highway 19 is nothing but talk. Not even one centimetre of the highway will be built.
Instead of arguing, the government should transfer the lump sum to Quebec.
