FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Regina, SK)- Member of Parliament Randy Hoback (Prince Albert, SK) and Member of Parliament Matt Jeneroux (Edmonton Riverbend, AB), the Shadow Minister for Infrastructure, Communities and Urban affairs, released the following statement about infrastructure delays impacting Saskatchewan:
“Scott Moe, the Premier of Saskatchewan, has publicly stated that his province has submitted more than $200 million worth of projects for federal consideration but delays in the Trudeau government’s process mean these projects won’t get started this construction season.
“Meanwhile, Justin Trudeau, while campaigning on the taxpayer’s dime, has repeatedly blamed Conservative premiers for infrastructure delays, insinuating the premiers are too proud to stand on stage with Liberal Members of Parliament for infrastructure announcements. This couldn’t be further from the truth – these premiers are trying their hardest to get infrastructure built for their provinces while the federal Liberals continue to play politics.
“The Trudeau Liberals’ $188 billion infrastructure plan has been plagued with delays and setbacks since taking office four years ago. It’s time for the government to start fixing the problems and being honest with Canadians instead of continuing to pass the blame and play politics on this important issue.
“An Andrew Scheer government will put forward an infrastructure plan that not only grows the economy, but gets much needed projects built in communities across Canada.”
