Madam Speaker, that is obviously not enough.
The federal government needs to get an icebreaker built. It can choose between, on the one hand, a Vancouver shipyard that had the contract taken away because it could not fulfill it and, on the other, Davie shipyard in Lévis, Quebec, which is ready to get to work right away.
The Liberals have decided to give another $1 billion to the Vancouver shipyard so it can finish the contract late and over budget, and do the job that Davie can do right now.
It is a bad political decision, a waste of public money and an insult to Quebec.
Why are the Quebec Liberals not speaking out on this?
