FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
Edmonton, AB – Matt Jeneroux, the Shadow Minister for Infrastructure, Communities and Urban Affairs, released the following statement regarding the abrupt resignation of the head of investments at the Canada Infrastructure Bank:
 
“The unexpected resignation of the Head of Investments for the Canada Infrastructure Bank amid ongoing spending delays is proof that Justin Trudeau’s promises on infrastructure were not as advertised.
 
“In the last election, Trudeau said he would spend billions on new infrastructure projects. Instead, his poor judgment has delayed much needed roads, bridges, and other projects.
 
“This is just the latest in a string of broken promises from the last election.
 
“He said he would be accountable and ethical. Instead, he used the power of his office to reward his supporters and punish his critics. He said he would help the middle class. Instead, he raised taxes on 80% of middle-class Canadians and brought in a carbon tax that makes everyday essentials more expensive. He said he would balance the budget. Instead, he’s run massive deficits that threaten social programs and higher taxes.
 
“The last four years have shown that Trudeau is simply not as advertised.
 
“A Conservative government led by Andrew Scheer will help all Canadians get ahead, and that includes working with provinces to get much-needed projects built in communities across Canada.”
