OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will provide details on Wednesday about the government’s key recovery plan for provinces and cities, which involves $19 billion for measures aimed at fighting COVID-19.
Trudeau will be speaking Wednesday afternoon about the Safe Restart Program, which was announced back in June as a way to funnel money to cash-strapped provinces and municipalities. People familiar with the announcement, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said Ottawa has now received agreements from all provinces and territories on the spending plan.
