Province to receive $713M over 10 years in gas-tax revenue

WINNIPEG — There was a smorgasbord of politicians at Winnipeg’s city hall on Friday morning for the announcement of the current federal gas-tax funding agreement.

Federal Heritage Minister Shelly Glover (St. Boniface) said Ottawa is guaranteeing Manitoba municipalities will get $713 million over the next 10 years, the province’s share of federal gas-tax revenue.

For 2014, Manitoba municipalities will receive $65 million, with $40.5 million going to Winnipeg.

Stan Struthers, provincial minister of municipal government, said each municipality will determine how their share of the money will be spent.

Mayor Sam Katz said Winnipeg has an infrastructure deficit of $3.2 billion, adding the gas-tax revenue is a small part of the solution.

He said the city administration will recommend where to spend the money, but none will be spent on the second stage of the Southwest Transitway.
