Statement in the House, Tuesday, March 10, 2009
Nowhere is this more positively demonstrated than in my riding of Leeds-Grenville.
Canadians, including those in my riding, told us they needed infrastructure money to move critical projects forward.
This government delivered.
One of the most important projects is the Port of Prescott where crumbling docks will be rebuilt.
This is an inland, deep-water port where dry bulk cargo is transferred and stored.
Mr. Speaker the Port services municipalities throughout Eastern Ontario - providing storage and delivery of road salt - and it service farmers with grain storage and shipment.
Without this critical dock, thousands of transport trucks would be driving across Ontario delivering salt for roads and delivering corn.
Mr. Speaker our government is repairing critical infrastructure and helping keep Ontario Green.
