“It’s good to see the NDP government is on board with continuing the Municipal Sustainability Initiative (MSI) funding that was budgeted for 2015-2016 by the previous government. However, we don’t know if any projects have been taken off the list or added to the list, and that’s a concern.
“I’m not sure what the Municipal Affairs Minister may have said to the Capital Region Board today behind closed doors, but publicly he has been eerily silent on whether municipalities will receive new taxation powers. We’re asking him to end that silence and clarify what he and the government intend to do.”
