Mr. Benno Friesen (Surrey-White Rock-North Delta):

Madam Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Public Works. When the special recovery program was announced, Pacific Highway customs facilities in Surrey were part of that list of special targeted programs for fast tracking. The consultant had been hired and had almost finished his report when the program was withdrawn. I believe that was because of the Minister's directive. Another consultant was hired to do the work all over again. I should like to ask the Minister why that happened? Is it his version of fast tracking? If the funds have

been withdrawn, to what other part of Canada have they been assigned?
