Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced in New Brunswick on September 28 that work has begun on 4,000 of the 7,500 infrastructure and housing projects earmarked for funds, all in the first six months of the 24-month economic stimulus period.

Opposition Liberals reported that only 12% of the billions promised had actually flowed through to construction activity, but the government replied that a lot of the funding was already being spent in preparatory stages of construction such as engineering.

The Prime Minister recently visited the site of a $70-million project being done by Morrison Hershfield consulting engineers to reconstruct Highway 8 near Cambridge, Ontario.
