MASSE IN THE HOUSE: QUESTIONS TRANSPORT MINISTER ON DRIC FUNDING PROBLEMS

    Mr. Brian Masse (Windsor West, NDP): Mr. Speaker, since signing the crossing agreement, the new Windsor-Detroit bridge project, often referred to as Canada's top infrastructure priority, has been utterly mismanaged by the Conservative government. The latest problem is the U.S. government is refusing to say who will pay the $250 million needed for the U.S. customs plaza.

    Could the minister assure Canadians that they will not be on the hook or front the money for the cost of building the U.S. government's customs plaza in Detroit?
