CA, 01 Oct 2020
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday outlined a plan to spend $10 billion through the Canada Infrastructure Bank on infrastructure and clean technology projects that he says will create 60,000 jobs.

Trudeau laid out broad strokes of the new spending plan in a press conference alongside Infrastructure Minister Catherine McKenna and Michael Sabia, chair of the bank’s board.

“This plan alone will create about 60,000 jobs right across the country,” Trudeau said.

In addition to unveiling the plan, the prime minister announced that the House of Commons on Thursday morning introduced a bill to ban conversion therapy in Canada, which is a "degrading" practice harmful to the LGBTQ2 community. Trudeau called it an "unacceptable" and "discredited" practice that "has no place in Canada."
