Mr. Ed Harper (Simcoe Centre)
Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Transport.
This government was elected on a promise of jobs and infrastructure. Pearson airport is arguably the single most important piece of infrastructure in Canada and a huge creator of jobs.
All five regional chairpersons in the metro area agree that future growth and jobs are at risk. The review on Pearson by Mr. Robert Nixon recommended the same thing, that immediate construction begin.
Can the minister explain why he continues to ignore local leaders and the Nixon report by delaying action on this important project?
