Infrastructure Minister defends crown corporation that has never completed a project

DM

Infrastructure Minister Catherine McKenna has promised that the Canada Infrastructure Bank will fund more projects in future despite the crown corporation having never completed a project. Speaking to the House of Commons transport committee, McKenna was grilled for promising new and better infrastructure investments when the Canada Infrastructure Bank has little to show after four years in existence. “Projects don’t get built in a day,” McKenna said. “This is about more infrastructure.” “You haven’t got it done,” replied Conservative MP Andrew Scheer. “That’s the problem. You’ve got zero projects completed.” “This idea that large projects take time, of course you’re right Minister. There’s no argument there. There’s no argument that it takes more than just a few days or a couple of weeks to get a large infrastructure project built. But surely to goodness you can agree that in four years the Bank should have something to show for it.”
