The CHP would put Canada back to work with a nationwide infrastructure stimulus package that would fix our cities, our highways and our bridges.
Jobs stimulate the economy. The CHP would revive the plan that was successfully used in Canada to combat unemployment after the Second World War. The Bank of Canada was ordered to make virtually interest-free loans to provinces, municipalities and cities for infrastructure projects: roads, highways, bridges, rail lines, ports—today we could include hospitals, urban and inter-urban passenger rail lines, water and sewage treatment plants. Building and repairing this infrastructure would create employment within the construction industry while providing employment in the facilities when they are operational.
