Dr. Gulzar Cheema was also present at the event. “People are very nervous and worried about the future and economy. There is only one leader and party that is giving the people a solid plan – that is Justin Trudeau and Liberal party,” said Sukh Dhaliwal.
A lot of topics were discussed at the meet – middle class families, senior citizens, women, housing, immigrants, better environment, and employment facilities, among others. The main focus however was on Liberal Head Justin Trudeau’s infrastructure policy which was unveiled on August 27.
The multi-billion dollar plan includes significant new funding for public transit and transportation and affordable housing, as well as funding to help communities adapt to climate change, which has been blamed for billions in damage from flooding, wildfires and hailstorms.
Trudeau says the extra $60 billion in spending over 10 years would boost infrastructure spending to $125 billion.
