Mr. Steve Butland (Sault Ste. Marie):
Madam Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Public Works. It is the issue of the Sault Ste. Marie canal and its lock. It was once an international navigational link but has not been operational for six years.
I appreciate the minister's involvement to this point in his ongoing discussions to rehabilitate the lock, including a visit to the site. But this Parliament's time is running out and the project remains in limbo.
Can the minister give any indication whether the project is any closer to completion?
