QUESTION IN THE HOUSE - Mega-yacht Marina

Murray Rankin, Victoria, BC

Mr. Speaker, I am honoured to rise in the House today and represent the people of Victoria.

Against the wishes of many residents, Conservatives recently approved a mega-yacht marina in Victoria's inner harbour. A planned environmental assessment was cancelled, yet another victim of last spring's omnibus budget bill.

When will Conservatives stop ignoring the people of Victoria and start consulting with them?

Steven Fletcher, Minister of State (Transport)

Mr. Speaker, I welcome the member for Victoria to the House of Commons. He may not be here for a long time, but it will be a good time.

The big picture is our economic action plan has made Canada a leader in troubled global times. Canada has the lowest debt burden, by far, of all the G7 countries. We have created almost 900,000 net new jobs. We are governed by the best Prime Minister andMinister of Finance in the world.
