"The Federation of Canadian Municipalities welcomes today's announcement from the Green Party of Canada on their plan to significantly invest in municipal infrastructure. Investing in municipal infrastructure creates jobs and improves the quality of life for Canadians, today and in the future. The Green Party plan would provide long-term, predictable funding for our cities and communities and recognizes the critical role infrastructure plays in ensuring a bright economic future for Canada. Dedicated municipal infrastructure investments like those proposed by the Green Party will help build a Canada that can compete with the very best in the world."
