We cannot afford another relapse in the places where we live and work. We need to keep moving forward.
Governments must move beyond the political turf wars that cost taxpayers money and keep us from delivering results on issues that affect Canadians. Today's challenges criss-cross political boundaries. They call for greater cooperation. The economic action plan is a powerful reminder of what governments can achieve when they set clear objectives and work together to meet them. We need to take the same approach when it comes to addressing our longer-term challenges. That's a vision Canadians support and municipalities are ready to help build.
We're closer to it than we were just a few years ago. Let's not stop now.
Thank you for your time and attention. Merci.
