MP Gord Brown reminds government of promised Parks Canada funding

Leeds Grenville MP Gord Brown says every day he hears the federal government talking about kick-starting infrastructure. And every day big cities line up to spend that money on their urban projects.

Brown sent a letter to remind federal environment minister Catherine McKenna that the previous government promised funding to several local Parks Canada properties.

When the budget was balanced last year the Conservative government announced $39.4 million worth of projects for the Rideau Canal and $7.7 million for rehabilitation of Thousand Islands National Park.

Brown says he intends to see that money gets spent where it was pledged.
