Finance committee  The relationship between the federal government and municipalities is very engaged. As I said in my comments, the engagement around budget 2017 was exceptional. The conversations are deep and getting deeper. So the idea that municipal government has a role to play in nation build

Finance committee  Sure, just very quickly.... We are always looking to simplify the process, so those conversations are ongoing. The government and the department have been very receptive to the discussions. I should just caution that there are times when.... There is an assumption that the timi

Finance committee  There are a few issues there. Certainly, as I said in my comments, we're looking to budget 2018 as part of the movement to define more clearly what was committed in budget 2017, so that the program definitions around the integrated bilateral agreements and the eligibility criteri

Finance committee  I wouldn't say that the federal government and the municipalities should stand together against the provinces and territories. That said, I think we all share the same goal, which is to ensure that the funds allocated to infrastructure continue to be spent on local projects. It'

Health committee  We have to understand that we're talking about two things when we talk about costs. We're talking about the start-up costs, all the work that needs to be done to prepare for the arrival of this legislation, the policing, bylaws, etc., and then there are the ongoing administrative

Health committee  Thanks very much, Bill. As you may know, FCM's 2,000 member municipalities represent 90% of Canadians in every region, province, and territory, big cities, rural towns, northern and remote areas. Our communities are where people live, work, and raise their families. Often when

Transport committee  I'd like to respond to that one. There is no question that there is a need for this country to look at its infrastructure from the perspective of resilience and from the perspective of the impacts of climate change and greenhouse gas emission reduction. We believe there are gre

Brock Carlton

Transport committee  The new public transit fund is set up to respond to big projects in big cities, and those projects take time. They take time to plan, to develop, and to pull together all the financing for them. We're hoping there will be a process to start an approval mechanism not in three year

Transport committee  I should add to the previous comments that if the design plays out appropriately—and we're in those discussions now—the municipal governments will be able to understand when the money's going to be in play, and they'll be able to borrow against it so that they can start their pro
