- Curtis: Are criticisms of the preliminary nuclear accord with Iran prescient or paranoid?
Yes, this is one of many priorities which together should involve massive investment by both government and the private sector in all aspects of infrastructure—roads, railways, pipelines, highways, education, and health…Canada has fallen behind its European, emerging economy, and even USA competitors in investment…our major cities, particularly Toronto, which forty years ago were the envy/model of New York City, Cleveland, Detroit, etc. now look forty years behind the times because of lack of infrastructure investment….current austerity must be balanced by public spending in infrastructure now to lay the basis for longer-term Canadian growth and prosperity.
