Mind the Gap - Finding the Money to Upgrade Canada's Aging Public Infrastructure

After a quarter century of under-investment, Canada's system of public infrastructure is in need of major repair and upgrade. But, while this fact has been well recognized by policymakers across the country over the past few years, and reflected in a corresponding rebound in capital outlays since the late 1990s, momentum to take action already appears to be losing muscle. Notably, after a few better years on the fiscal front, governments are once again facing a tightening financial noose. And, in this competitive environment, infrastructure almost certainly loses out to other areas of government funding. Meanwhile, Canada's infrastructure pothole continues to deepen.
