NDP’S STABLE, PREDICTABLE INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN IS THE CHANGE COMMUNITIES NEED

Published on September 18, 2015 with No Comments

OTTAWA — NDP Leader Tom Mulcair is committed to stable and predictable investments in community infrastructure and public transit. This is much needed change from the Conservatives who have used infrastructure funding for photo-ops and Justin Trudeau who is promising the same short-term funding that has contributed to Canada’s infrastructure crisis.

“We are going to be a reliable, long-term partner for municipalities across the country. We don’t need the short-term thinking of the Liberals,” said Mulcair during tonight’s leaders’ debate on the economy. “Our plan is for predictable spending over 20 years, 1.5 billion a year in infrastructure 1.3 billion a year in transit. Those are important sums of money, reliable and long-term.”

An NDP government will take the politics out of federal infrastructure funding by increasing the amount transferred to municipalities from the existing gas tax. By the end of Tom Mulcair’s first term, the total gas tax transfer will reach $3.7 billion annually in core infrastructure funding. Tom Mulcair’s Better Transit Plan will provide $1.3 billion annually in predictable, stable and transparent public transit investment over the next 20 years. These investments will create over 23,000 new construction and manufacturing jobs in communities across Canada.
