Madam Speaker, we are very proud of this plan. We will welcome as many eyes upon it as possible, in fact the more, the better. We are very proud of this plan, which is changing the lives of Canadians every day.
One of the things the member for New Westminster has identified is that there are needs in communities that he perhaps feels are not being met. I would like to take this opportunity to underscore the complexity of many of these projects. The Infrastructure Canada and the federal government do not reach down into communities and declare what is important and what is not.
I find myself having conversations with my constituents frequently. As much as they would like a new bus line, it is not in my ability to design a new bus route. Rather, we create the systems through which the municipalities and the provinces apply. Tenders have to be let, projects designed and, finally, contracts given. This all takes time, sometimes years.
