Mr. Doug Fee (Red Deer):

Mr. Speaker, it is a privilege for me today to share with this House my pleasure about an announcement made a few days ago concerning my riding of Red Deer.
The Caroline Area Gas Development Group, fourteen companies headed by Shell Canada, has announced a proposal to proceed with a $600 million development, including a natural gas refinery and sulphur processing plant near Caroline, Alberta.
Over 1,200 construction jobs will be created.
There will be permanent employment for 150 people locally and over $17 million a year pumped into our local economy.
There is no federal Government funding in this project. These 14 companies are confidently investing in their future because they believe they can compete.
With renewed confidence in government policy and more secure access to U.S. markets to be gained from the Free Trade Agreement, Canadians are going to see more projects like this one in Caroline.
