Thank you to all of our witnesses for being here this afternoon.
The first question I'd like to pose will be for both Ms. Ballem and Mayor Vrbanovic.
You've both made a very strong link between the importance of investing in infrastructure and the impact those investments have on the economy, the impact on economic growth, on job creation. Could you both elaborate on that notion to begin with? We'll go with ladies first, Ms. Ballem.

Great. Thank you very much.
Mayor Vrbanovic, thank you very much for being here this afternoon by video conference. Do you have any thoughts to elaborate on this important linkage between investments in infrastructure and impact on economic growth?

Right. Thank you.
Mayor Vrbanovic, in response to a question, you said you'd like to see as many dollars going to infrastructure as possible. What trend have you seen over the last decade with respect to federal government investments in infrastructure?

On a point of order, Mr. Chair.

I'm just seeking clarification, Mr. Chair, and trying to understand if Mr. McGuinty's line of questioning at all, including this most recent one, has anything to do with infrastructure and the scope of our study?

Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
As I only have five minutes, I want to go as quickly as I can here. I want to start with Industry Canada officials. Broadband and connectivity is also an eligible category under the new building Canada plan. I want to ask you if you could please help us understand how the two plans mesh, how the Infrastructure Canada plan and the Industry Canada plan with respect to broadband and connectivity mesh, or for example, how there may be one project where both programs are supporting it.
Could you help us understand that? That's the crux of the issue here.

Understood. Are you aware of a project where both programs have been involved yet?

That's fine. Okay.
It may come. It's a decade—

Thank you very much.
Professor Siemiatycki, with respect to P3s, you were talking about the transfer of a “construction risk” with P3s. What do you mean by construction risk?
View Peter Braid Profile
CPC (ON)
Okay, understood.
I think you also went on to say that in some cases P3s can perhaps be more expensive to procure than if government has “effectively managed the risk”. Now that can be a big if, can it not?

I had one more really good question.

Thank you very much.
Mr. Toderian, if the objective of the new building Canada plan and projects supported under the plan is to promote economic growth, job creation, and productivity, would you support that?
View Peter Braid Profile
CPC (ON)
That's exactly what the objective of projects supported under the new building Canada plan is.
If public transit were an eligible category under every component of the new building Canada plan, would you support that?
View Peter Braid Profile
CPC (ON)
Because public transit is an eligible category.

That's excellent.
