Federal infrastructure spending: speak out

by

The Black Press newspaper chain is asking the question,

“What is the number one project in your community that you feel would be most effective in helping improve local economic and social conditions?”

Respond in 75 words or less, by either leaving a comment on one of their websites, or writing a Letter to the Editor of your local paper.

With the federal budget now less than 2 weeks away (Jan. 27), it’s crucial that we push as hard as we can for re-establishing Interurban rail service as part of the big infrastructure spending stimulus the government is planning. Remember that upgrading the Interurban track so that passenger rail can run on it is a “shovel ready project.”

This is something we can all do right now.

I suspect Black Press is doing this to try to somehow get people to use their online “comments” section (that these days remains completely blank for most articles) Anyway, no matter, we can take advantage of this and get the word out some more.
