Fact Check: Trudeau is desperately lying about our Conservative plan to build infrastructure

October 12, 2019

Justin Trudeau failed to deliver the infrastructure he promised to Canadians

The independent Parliamentary Budget Officer (PBO) confirmed that Justin Trudeau was unable to deliver 40% of the budgeted infrastructure he promised.

In contrast Andrew Scheer will extend the Investing in Canada Plan by an additional three years so that the entire $187-billion program is spent over 15 years instead of 12.

Conservatives worked with the PBO to ensure that our infrastructure plan:

  1. Maintains all projects committed to by the Liberal Government;
  2. Maintains the Gas Tax Fund and Goods and Services Tax rebate to municipalities at the same levels; and
  3. Funds important projects such as:
    • The George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project (British Columbia);
    • The Ontario Line and the Yonge Subway Extension (Ontario); and
    • The third link between Quebec City and Levis (Québec).
