Nash on infrastructure

by

Just in time for tonight’s debate in Toronto, Peggy Nash has announced her plan for infrastructure funding.

In her plan, Nash vows to: Establish a National Transit Strategy with a ten-year funding horizon; Create two Canada Green Communities funds – one for cities, one for smaller municipalities – whose mandate will be to invest in municipal projects such as transit and affordable housing renewal to maximize GHG emission reductions; Establish a new Canada Green Buildings fund to fast-track energy efficiency investments and drive the application of innovative green technologies;
