Conservatives are working with partners

Federal government has been a strong supporter of local infrastructure projects

Re: Increased federal government funding needed, Letters (July 4)

After the reading the above noted letter, I thought it important to remind readers that the Conservative government has been a dependable partner and a strong supporter of local infrastructure projects.

The federal government was a proud partner in the construction of the Kawkawa Lake Road Bridge and the upgrading of the roadway.

The Conservative government invested $3.3 million in this project which improved the efficiency of the roadway and safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

In the depth of the recession, it created approximately 100 direct and indirect jobs.

More recently the federal government invested almost $100,000 in the upgrading of the Hope Regional Airpark and four-regional parks. Funding enabled much needed infrastructure improvements. The project not only supported local employment but creates the opportunity for future economic activity.

The Conservative government will continue to work with our provincial and municipal partners to support infrastructure projects and create jobs, growth and long-term prosperity.

Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP
