Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault will face pointed questions from the federal transport committee over recent remarks that the Liberal government will stop funding new roads across the country. On Feb. 12, Guilbeault spoke at a fundraising luncheon for a public transit advocacy group in Montreal. The Montreal Gazette published the transcript of his speech.

The House of Commons’ Standing Committee on Transport, Infrastructure and Communities voted 11-0 on Wednesday to summon the minister. The motion also invites Housing Minister Sean Fraser and Transport Minister Pablo Rodriguez to testify before the committee. The ministers are being asked to testify separately for one hour each within 14 days of the motion being passed.
