Mr. Ron MacDonald (Dartmouth):

Madam Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Transport.
For five years the government through its fiscal and transportation policies has driven business away from the port of Halifax causing millions of dollars in traffic and hundreds of jobs to be lost.
Now that the new premier of Nova Scotia, John Savage, has made the competitiveness of the port of Halifax his top priority, will the Minister of Transport do the same and finally address the regressive taxation and transportation policies that have crippled Canada's east coast ports?
