The provincial NDP say they're concerned about government's delays on local, northern infrastructure projects getting funding for construction season.

Flin Flon MLA Tom Lindsey says as northern communities try to rebound from the pandemic, it’s critical that the government send and approve funding applications on crucial municipal projects in the north under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. He explains in northern Manitoba as opposed to the south our construction season is a whole lot shorter than it is down south so every month that the government delays in answering the funding question or approving a project it’s less time then to go to contract, go through with that whole process of vetting the contractor and everything else and they getting a project started and really this whole process was supposed to have been done a long time ago and yet here’s the town of Snow Lake in particular still waiting to hear if the project is going to get approved.


According to an article published in a Winnipeg newspaper, the federal government says it hasn’t received any applications for northern and rural projects.


Lindsey says there is still time for the province to submit these applications and get them green-lit adding the clock is ticking.
