FREDERICTON - Raymond Louie, president of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, released the following statement on the New Democratic Party of Canada's announcement today on transit and infrastructure:
"The NDP's detailed plan will grow the economy, create local jobs and improve the quality of life for Canadians in communities of all sizes. Tom Mulcair's promise to increase direct transfers to municipalities through the Gas Tax Fund and to introduce a comprehensive transit plan is a significant step forward for municipalities across the country. It points the way forward to a new era in which cities and communities can plan ahead and deliver on local priorities," says FCM President Raymond Louie.
