Minister Christian Dubé, the president of the Quebec treasury board, has just announced the acceleration of the $3-billion infrastructure plan announcement in March.

“We’re going to accelerate the renovation projects of primary and secondary schools and the construction of new and more modern schools — 39 (of the 202) projects have to do with the education sector,” Mr. Dubé said. “In health, we’ll be able to proceed on the construction and renovation of 48 CHSLDs and other senior homes and hospitals across Quebec. In health, it’s a total of 90 projects out of 202. There will also be 42 road, bridge and collective transportation projects, including analyzing the prolonging of the REM and certain metro lines.”
