5 Minutes for Business: Infrastructure Spending—Real Bang for the Buck!

One of our pet peeves at the Canadian Chamber is when governments talk about infrastructure investment purely in terms of how many billions they’re spending, often with few details about what the infrastructure is trying to achieve.

That’s why, last month, we released a report called Stuck in Traffic for 10,000 Years: Canadian Problems that Infrastructure Can Solve. This report talks about what we get out of infrastructure, rather than just asking how much money is going in.

In this edition of 5 Minutes for Business, Hendrik Brakel, our Senior Director, Economic, Financial and Tax Policy, outlines three priority areas for infrastructure investment that would give us a real bang for our buck.
