More Money Needed For Infrastructure Improvements

Municipalities across the country are expressing concern about the new Building Canada Fund. Its supposed to keep money flowing to help communities repair roads, bridges and other infrastructure projects. However, Union of Nova Scotia Municipalities President David Corkum of Kentvile fears there's not enough money to go around.

Corkum also says there may be too much red tape involved for villages, towns and cities to aquire funding.
He's calling on Ottawa to join in talks with municipalities to examine ways of fixing the problems.
