Nothing in Con budget to address massive Marine Atlantic cuts; Minister misleads NLers

I posed the following question today (April 22nd) during Question Period in the House of Commons:

Mr. Speaker,

They're raiding the emergency fund to give billions to the wealthiest, instead of helping average Canadians.

Take Marine Atlantic as an example.

After being told yesterday to "wait for the budget."
There was nothing in the budget to address the massive cuts that the Conservatives have made to our ferry services.

Mr. Speaker,

Will the Minister come clean and admit that the Conservatives are moving ahead with an 85 per cent cut to the critical transportation link that the people and the economy of Newfoundland and Labrador cannot live without?
