Guilbeault clarifies controversial road funding comments: “I should have specified”

Canada’s Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault faced a House of Commons transport committee on Thursday over his controversial remarks on federal road funding.

According to quotes published in the Montreal Gazette, Guilbeault told a crowd in the city on Feb. 12 that Ottawa won’t be funding any projects that “enlarge the road network.”

“The analysis we have done is that the network is perfectly adequate to respond to the needs we have,” he said at the time. Two days later in the nation’s capital, Guilbeault said “of course we’re funding roads.”

“I should have specified that these comments [were] made in the context of the third link in Quebec City — a link between the South Shore and Quebec,” Guilbeault said at Thursday’s hearing.
