ABBOTSFORD (October 10, 2020) – This week, the BC Liberals announced their ground-breaking plan to invest in B.C. infrastructure. The Rebuild B.C. plan includes investing $8 billion over three years to build more schools, hospitals, transit and roads in every corner of the province, as well as scrapping the NDP’s insider contract scheme that excludes 85% of BC construction workers.
“Expanding the Trans-Canada highway as far as Whatcom Road will make a huge difference to the constituents in my riding,” said John Martin, BC Liberal Candidate for Chilliwack. “For the thousands of people who commute from Chilliwack to Metro Vancouver every day, this project means less traffic, less time spent in the car, and increased safety.”
“These investments are greatly needed in our community,” said Bruce Banman, BC Liberal Candidate for Abbotsford South. “From commuting, to the transportation of important goods, to being major throughway for both emergency vehicles and people exploring this province, the Trans-Canada is a vital artery and we need to make sure it has the capacity to serve this region. People should not have to be stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic on a daily basis.”
After three years in office, John Horgan and the NDP have given B.C. plenty of studies and a list of broken promises but next to nothing when it comes to building any new infrastructure. The BC Liberals’ $8 billion Rebuild B.C. plan will change that, accelerating infrastructure investments to meet the needs of the province’s growing population, creating jobs, and improving long-term productivity — all vital steps as we work to restore confidence and rebuild B.C.
