Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Since this government took over, we've heard a lot about how much money has been spent on housing. I think what has been lacking, though, are the real, detailed outcomes. I hear you as minister, and the previous minister, throwing numbers around—40,000, 30,000 and whatever—but I've never really seen where that is actually justified.
First of all, I think what you're attempting to do here with this fund is the right thing to do, because if you talk to anyone in the construction business, their number one frustration is getting through the regulations, the approvals and all of those sorts of barriers at the municipal level. Taking action to try to clear out some of those roadblocks is I think the right thing to do.
Again, I'm wondering how you plan to ensure that there are specific outcomes and specific goals achieved so that we're not just throwing more money at something when we really don't know whether, at the end, the kinds of results that we hope will be attained are actually attained.
