Infrastructure and funding were key discussion points at the meetings.

“It’s all about listening to local leaders in municipalities across the province.

“We’re making sure we really understand the strengths of our communities, and also some of the challenges in communities that they’re facing.

“We got some ideas that are really helpful. So, it’s been a good day of meetings. I know that a key area that is important is infrastructure for funding. This is something we’re committed to making sure we have infrastructure [funding] for municipalities, that affects the ability to plan for the long term.

“Right now, communities are facing some serious infrastructure pressures and we want to make sure that the dollars of the provincial share are in place, partner with the federal dollar.

Everything from wastewater to water and landfills, to sidewalks. So, some good conversations there.”
