NDP Statement on Deal with Provinces and Territories
Taylor Bachrach, NDP Critic for Infrastructure and Communities made the following statement:
“While it’s better late than never to see the Liberals finally commit to helping municipalities, time will tell whether this funding will be enough to ensure vital services are maintained and laid-off municipal workers are brought back to work.
For months, New Democrats have been calling on the government to help.
It's frustrating that while our towns and cities were hurting, they spent precious time trying to pass the buck to the provinces.
We will continue to push the government to make sure this money actually gets to cities and gets to them without delay.”
