Federal Issues--February 2017
FCM has been pushing for municipal issues to be addressed in the upcoming federal budget, and is asking all municipal members to reach out to their MPs now to support municipal priorities. These priorities are of significance to Nova Scotia municipalities focussing on: strengthening rural and northern Canada, housing, transit (including new transit), greener future, modernizing investment tools, and expanding trade and transportation.
