Clark vows new construction projects

Premier Christy Clark announced $207 million worth of accelerated capital projects, including roadworks, school and hospital improvements in her speech to close the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention Friday.

Clark said accelerated projects will be announced in the weeks ahead, including school improvements in Nanaimo, Campbell River, Houston, Surrey, Richmond, Mission, Maple Ridge and West Vancouver.

“These are new projects that we can get started this year, but this capital investment is not new money,” Clark told a Victoria convention hall packed with local politicians. “It is money we have saved from pinching our pennies.”
