Mr. Speaker, municipalities in my riding are looking forward to the roll out of the building Canada fund.
Unfortunately, most municipalities in my riding of Perth—Wellington did not benefit from COMRIF, created by the previous Liberal government. Most municipalities applied to all three rounds and received nothing. In the meantime, important projects have been put on hold.
Funding from our new building Canada fund along with significant investments in the gas tax fund will help our municipalities upgrade and renew their infrastructure. Our $33 billion of infrastructure funding over the next seven years is the largest single federal commitment to public infrastructure in 50 years.
I look forward to working with the Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities and his team in support of our municipalities.
