Vancouver, BC – Today, the Hon. Erin O’Toole, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives, announced his commitment to fund the replacement of the George Massey Tunnel in the Metro Vancouver region.
“For too long, the federal government has left addressing gridlock in Vancouver on the back burner,” said O’Toole.
“A Conservative government will immediately move to get shovels in the ground on critical infrastructure projects to create jobs and get the economy moving, and that includes replacing the George Massey Tunnel.”
Yesterday, O’Toole released Canada’s Recovery Plan, which includes a detailed plan to support nationally significant infrastructure projects and secure important trade and commuter corridors. Despite having the Member of Parliament for Delta sitting at the Cabinet Table for the entire span of the Justin Trudeau government, no progress has been made on this project.
“For years, Canada’s Conservatives have called for the replacement of the Massey Tunnel, but that call has fallen on deaf ears,” said O’Toole. “I am proud to support the Massey Tunnel replacement project as part of our plan to secure the future and improve the lives of British Columbians.”
