Feds promise $10B to get goods to market
OTTAWA, ON - The federal government's fall economic statement includes billions of dollars for new infrastructure, and creates a Canada Infrastructure Bank that will look to maximize investments in "growth-oriented" projects. About $10.1 billion is pledged to help bring Canadian goods to global markets over the next 11 years. "Right across Canada, infrastructure projects are creating good jobs while ensuring stronger communities," Finance Minister Bill Morneau said. "But we're not done. Not even close."
