Letter: Money for cities

Money for cities

I am very concerned that municipal governments are being forgotten in the midst of this pandemic. Municipal workers look after our health, maintain infrastructure and provide other essential services. That includes running our emergency services, parks, libraries, recreation centres and providing care for the elderly and the young. We need to call on the provincial and federal governments to throw our cities a lifeline.

The federal government can give cities the help they need by using the federal Gas Tax Fund (GTF) as the Federation of Canadian Municipalities is calling for.
