    Trudeau Government Drops $43 Billion In Summer Spending Blitz Aimed Mostly At Liberal Ridings
    The federal government spent the summer making $43 billion worth of funding announcements � aimed primarily at Liberal ridings in Eastern Canada.
    The size of funding announcements ranged from relatively minor � $4,000 for renovations to a Quebec town's recreation centre, for example � to major, such as the unveiling of Canada's Poverty Reduction Strategy, $22 billion in spending already committed to federal programs since 2015 with no new money attached.

    HuffPost Canada tabulated funding announcements made by federal departments and regional development agencies from June 20 � after the House of Commons rose for the summer � until Labour Day, on Sept. 3.

    Not all the money flowed into infrastructure projects or social programs. Some went to companies to innovate their food-related ventures or to support community events, such as $40,000 that went to a festival in Skinners Pond, P.E.I. celebrating Stompin' Tom Connors; and $50,000 in financial assistance for a Quebec meat processor to infuse a new line of sausages with a native microflora for a "distinctive" taste.

    Look at the map ..... Quebec seems to be getting alot ..... and that province that Justin can't remember ... Alberta, that's it .... sure not alot by the colour.
