KITCHENER, ONT. — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the Ontario government is holding up vital infrastructure spending.

He says the province risks missing this summer’s construction season if the delays continue.

Trudeau says Premier Doug Ford’s government has yet to say on which projects, including transit, it wants to partner with Ottawa.

The prime minister says Ontario is dragging its feet because it doesn’t want to work with his Liberal government.

Trudeau’s ramped-up rhetoric comes ahead of October’s federal election in which Ontario will be a key battleground.

Last week, Ford announced a $28.5-billion plan for four transit projects in the Toronto area and said he expects the federal government to contribute.

Spring/summer 2018 Ontario contracts were down due to bipartisanship. If we lose the 2019 season on capital projects, small to mids won’t survive.
