Province Wants More Money From Feds For Roads

Ontario says the federal government needs to ante up when it comes to road improvements.

The province is proposing the feds kick in $3 billion annually, matched dollar for dollar by Ontario.

Transportation Minister Glenn Murray says currently, the federal commitment is well below that and does little to improve infrastructure that's been neglected for many years.

Some smaller municipalities adds a federal program for upgrades excludes them because of their size.
