When our government was elected in 2015, one of our key promises was to make up for Canada’s infrastructure deficit, which was partly due to a lack of investment by the previous government.
We knew we had to think long term and be visionary. We knew it was time to provide Canada with 21st century modern, resilient and green infrastructure. That’s why we’ve worked tirelessly to put together a landmark plan that will invest more than $180 billion over 12 years in public infrastructure.
Our plan is ambitious and national but in reality, it is local. It aims to invest in Canada, but above all, in every community and every Canadian.https://kitchissippi.com/2019/03/04/federal-update-historic-and-ambitious-infrastructure-plan-for-canadians/
