The province’s plans for infrastructure spending for the year will be revealed today.
Finance Minister Wes Sheridan will table the 2013-2014 capital budget in the legislature.
It will spell out the province’s plans for roads, buildings and other infrastructure projects for the next fiscal year.
This budget will also outline the Ghiz government’s five-year plan for infrastructure expenditures across P.E.I.
Premier Robert Ghiz has warned that since federal stimulus funding has dried up, the
multitude of infrastructure projects seen a few years ago will not be quite so plentiful.
“We’ll be returning back to original spending levels in our infrastructure ... back into the traditional $65- to $70-million spend,” Ghiz said in a recent interview.
The Guardian will provide full coverage of the capital budget online and in print.
