Government bills, Province of Quebec, Second reading

Deuxième lecture, Province de Québec,

Mr. Speaker, for decades, separatist MPs in my region worked hard to prove that the federal government could not work. They worked hard to prove that the federal government was not interested in the riding. Those MPs did not actually do anything. All they did was obstruct the role of the federal government.

Since I have been here, we have managed to bring more than $100 million in extra funding to the riding, mostly through the Canada child benefit, as well as through a number of other programs. Nearly $30 million has been invested in other programs.

People are starting to see that the federal government has a role to play in the regions in Quebec.

I would like to know whether my colleague from Hull—Aylmer has had a similar experience.

Monsieur le Président, depuis une génération, plusieurs députés indépendantistes de ma région ont travaillé fort pour démontrer que le gouvernement fédéral ne pouvait pas fonctionner. Ils ont travaillé fort aussi pour démontrer que le gouvernement fédéral ne s'intéressait pas à la circonscription. Ces députés ne faisaient rien. Tout ce qu'ils faisaient, c'était bloquer le rôle du fédéral.

Depuis mon arrivée, nous avons réussi à amener plus de 100 millions de dollars supplémentaires dans la circonscription, surtout grâce à l'Allocation canadienne pour enfants, ainsi qu'à plusieurs autres programmes. Presque 30 millions de dollars ont été investis dans d'autres programmes.

Les gens commencent à voir que le fédéral a un rôle à jouer dans les régions du Québec.

J'aimerais savoir si mon collègue de Hull—Aylmer a vécu une expérience similaire.
