Cities and towns in Canada are in danger of going over an "infrastructure cliff" unless a federally funded infrastructure plan replaces the Building Canada Plan, which is set to expire in less than two years, NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair warned Thursday. What is needed, Mulcair told a Federation of Canadian Municipalities meeting in Ottawa, is a "once-in-a-generation fix" to replace the roads, bridges and wastewater treatment facilities that are nearing the end of their service life. The Building Canada Plan was launched by the federal government in 2007 for a seven-year period and provided $33billion for municipal infrastructure projects.
