Christmas Comes Early For Local Municipalities

By Tim Davidson Dec 14, 2022 | 8:58 AM

The province is contributing $6.6 million to the Kenora-Rainy River Riding for infrastructure projects.

Minister of Northern Development Greg Rickford says most of the municipalities will get the increased funding because of higher costs.

“There are three things…we have inflation, which is affecting us all as Canadians…we have supply chain challenges and pretty typically we have increased costs to get many of our products here to the region” explains Rickford.

Rickford says the funding reflects the increased cost of doing business.

“This kind of, I don’t want to call it a top-up, because it is a substantive part of the coverage of the cost, but it does reflect the additional costs that these projects are taking on.”

Rickford says most of the municipalities in the riding will get the increased funding to help cover the higher costs of infrastructure.
