Canada’s Infrastructure Minister Says $35 Billion Infrastructure Bank Won’t Leave Taxpayers on the Hook

CBC News reports that Federal Infrastructure Minister Amarjeet Sohi “says taxpayers won’t be on the hook if projects financed through the proposed national infrastructure bank don’t produce the kinds of revenues private-sector investors expect. The Liberals want to create the $35-billion Canada Infrastructure Bank to attract outside investors such as pension plans and international financial institutions for major projects that Sohi says the government can’t afford to build on its own.”
