National Infrastructure Summit Day 3: The Reportening

My phone just died, so I can’t post a picture, but Mayor Pat Fiacco just finished killing time at the podium by talking about boxing, and Karen Leibovici, the president of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, has just walked in the room and is getting introduced. Leibovici will be presenting the Canadian Infrastructure Report Card, which the FCM has developed in partnership with “several private partners” and claims is the first of its kind in Canada.

I just got handed a brief, so while this session takes place. Volume 1 deals, apparently, with municipal roads and water systems. I’ll admit I was hoping for something more comprehensive, but we’ll see what comes out of this Q&A session.
