Thousands of infrastructure projects in limbo as confusion plagues $14-billion federal funding program
By now, municipalities and small communities across Canada had expected to see thousands of infrastructure projects taking shape. That hasn't happened.

Or, so they had thought.

On May 1 Premier Kathleen Wynne and her Liberal party tabled a budget that included a 10-year, $13-billion investment in public infrastructure. However, on the following day, NDP leader Andrea Horwath announced she would not support the budget, triggering an election.
