REGINA, Sask. — Prime Minister Jean Chretien’s whirlwind giving tour will land him in Regina today where he’s expected to announce $70 million to fast-track twinning of the TCH.
The additional funding will allow the Trans-Canada to be completely twinned by 2007 – five years ahead of schedule.
The province itself will also be increasing its spending to ensure the project is completed in a timely manner.
Last year, the feds committed $11.8 million to advance construction in the west while vowing to complete twinning to the Alberta border by 2004.
