The spending splurge of B.C.’s New Democratic government continues.
Premier David Eby announced Friday morning (Feb. 10) in Surrey that his government would distribute grants worth $1 billion to municipalities and regional districts by the end of March 2023.
Communities will be able to use the grants to build affordable housing infrastructure and amenities to prepare for future growth and build the amenities needed to support new home construction.
“Cities need more resources than what are available,” Eby said.
B.C. faces an infrastructure need now because of decisions made by past governments, he added.
“Every B.C. community should be place where you can build a good life.”
More to come.
