Mayor Fougere says he’s happy with Regina’s share of the federal budget announced on Tuesday.
The City was looking for $35 million worth of funding.
Fougere says the money will go a long way.
“We’re looking at a substantial transfer of money to municipalities for housing, infrastructure and transit, both in short term and major investments over the next few years.”
Fougere says he’s impressed with the strong relations between municipalities and the federal government after the big-city mayors’ meeting.
