Mr. Speaker, I am very pleased today to be able to recognize the investment promised by the Government of Canada to the communities in Glengarry—Prescott—Russell.
As part of the new deal for cities and communities, the government will divert over $13 million in revenues from the gasoline tax directly to the 10 municipalities in my riding. These funds will help all the communities to improve their infrastructure, thereby improving the quality of life there.
I look forward to seeing progress on the innovative projects this money will make possible.
I congratulate the Prime Minister and the Minister of State for Infrastructure and Communities on this excellent initiative.
