Madam Speaker, the hon. member across the way is even more honourable now that he is a grandfather. I congratulate him on the birth of Clovis. It is a great role and I also enjoy my three grandchildren, Michael, Anna and Jack. A lot of the work we do in this place is for them, including investing in infrastructure.
It is a very interesting discussion today because it really highlights the need to work with all orders of government. In Guelph we recently made an announcement of $170 million going towards electric buses, charging stations and a new garage for transit. Of this $170 million, $40 million came from the federal government, $30 million from the province and $100 million from the municipality.
Our role as members of Parliament is to start these discussions within our communities, to talk about the opportunities that the federal government has as a partner and to drive projects like this forward. I have four housing projects I am working on with CMHC along with the three orders of government in Guelph as well. The federal portion changes the conversation.
Could the hon. member talk about how he is engaging with his community and the provincial government to drive projects forward for his community?
