Madam Speaker, I appreciate the member for Joliette's excellent question.
The situation in Abitibi-Témiscamingue is dire. The Government of Quebec contributed $10 million to the GIRAT connectivity project I mentioned earlier. People in the regions got fed up with waiting for money from a federal program that is not well suited to regional realities.
In Canada, 80% of the population lives in urban centres. According to Canada's connectivity strategy, 95% of Quebeckers and Canadians should have mobile wireless coverage and Internet access. Sooner or later, programs will have to be adapted to the needs of resource regions. We pay half our taxes to Ottawa, so a fair share of that money should be spent where people are.
