Well, I will make sure that my colleague, the Minister of Transport, is seized of the very important situation there and he will certainly act.

Hon. Pierre Pettigrew (Minister of Foreign Affairs, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, do I take it that the opposition is congratulating the government for having made this agreement in principle that has been reached for the transfer of the federal hopper car fleet to the Farmer Rail Car Coalition for a total of $205 million? I think this is good news for Saskatchewan farmers and the western farmers.

I think the opposition should be acknowledging that after much effort on the part of this government we have finally delivered something that is going to be very important with the sale of these hopper cars for our western farmers.

Hon. Pierre Pettigrew (Minister of Foreign Affairs, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, we appreciate the Bloc Québécois members' humour this morning. It is a change from their usual bad mood.

Transport Canada intends to take the necessary steps to ensure that Canadian National completes the bridge repairs in accordance with its obligations and commitments in this regard.

Hon. Pierre Pettigrew (Minister of Foreign Affairs, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, this morning, together with my colleagues responsible for international cooperation, and the Francophonie, and with our special advisor to Haiti, we have announced a new contribution of $33 million for Haiti. This contribution will be used essentially to support projects aimed at security sector reform, social and economic reconstruction, reconciliation and the resumption of the democratic process.

We are also proud to work with the many organizations in Canada and with the Haitian diaspora that will see these projects through.

Canada will support Haitians as long as it takes.

Hon. Pierre Pettigrew (Minister of Foreign Affairs, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, the Deputy Prime Minister has answered that question. We have no reliable information proving that the United States is conducting activities in Canada that are in breach of Canadian or international law.

As I myself said in this House, if we find out that Canadian territory is being used in contravention of Canadian or international law, we will of course raise the issue with the United States. Canada expects its territory, including its air space, not to be used by foreign governments for activities that are in breach of Canadian or international law.
