The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, has recently announced new public transit investments across Canada to

  • build strong communities
  • fight climate change
  • create new jobs

The investments of $14.9 billion for public transit projects over the next 8 years include permanent funding of $3 billion per year for Canadian communities beginning in 2026-27. The investments announced will

  • be used for subways extensions and other major projects in big cities;
  • make sure people can access the services and help they need in small towns and rural, remote areas;
  • reduce pollution by switching public transit systems to cleaner electrical power;
  • create new jobs by building major public transit projects.

Word of the Day:

Switch: to swap or change. “To switch A to B”means to “adopt A in place of B”.
