Liberal government to spend $10B on infrastructure to fuel pandemic economic recovery


The Liberal government today promised to spend $10 billion on infrastructure initiatives such as broadband, clean energy and agricultural projects — part of a plan to boost growth and create one million jobs after the pandemic pummelled the economy. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Infrastructure Minister Catherine McKenna announced details of the three-year Canada Infrastructure Bank (CIB) plan during a news conference today. The government says it’s expected to create 60,000 jobs. “With smart, targeted investments, we can get people back on the job, grow the economy while building a healthy, sustainable future for everyone,” Trudeau said.
