Mr. Speaker, last week, three people in my riding died in a tragic float-plane crash off the coast of Port Hardy. Travel by air and water are a reality in communities like mine, and that is why we need reliable information from the weather stations. Safety is at risk when they are not working.
The owner of the plane showed me his letters to Transport Canada, desperately requesting that weather stations be fixed. Some were not working for months and even years. What is the Minister of Transport doing to ensure that those weather stations are properly maintained and working?
