/R E P E A T -- Media Advisory - Cutting Through Politics to Get Major Infrastructure Done - The School of Public Policy and Cirano to Release Feasibility Study on a Northern Corridor for Infrastructure Projects/

CALGARY, May 24, 2016 /CNW/ - Canada is a country united by national infrastructure.  We all know the critical role that rail, roads and telecommunications have played in uniting our vast expanses and challenging topography.  Now, in the 21st century, we have an opportunity to again harness infrastructure as a uniting force.  Unfortunately, debates over transportation infrastructure have been divisive – needlessly so.  Now, however, an idea has been developed to approve infrastructure efficiently, for the long-term, and in a truly pan-Canadian way.  This is an opportunity that cuts across ideologies and jurisdictions. 

Please join a host of public policy professionals from The School of Public Policy and Cirano at a media conference in Ottawa where they will unveil a feasibility study for a new solution for major national infrastructure projects, and suggest a path forward. 

A copy of the report will be available at the press conference.  Questions will be fielded in French and English.  Opportunities for one-on-one's, radio and television will be offered.
