Berry Vrbanovic to Address Economic Club

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 29, 2012) - Join the man elected to represent local governments across Canada as he shares the very latest information and analysis on how our cities and communities are doing as Canada continues its economic recovery. FCM President Berry Vrbanovic will give you a first-hand look at FCM's new report: The State of Canada's Cities and Communities 2012. The report measures our communities' vital signs and sheds light on where they're headed. Mr. Vrbanovic will take you behind the budget numbers and ribbon- cutting and ask whether local governments have the financial resources and relationships - with public and private sector partners - to provide the infrastructure, transportation and vital services Canada needs to compete in the 21st century and maintain our quality of life. With the federal government's support, local governments have helped fight the recession and fixed thousands of crumbling roads, bridges and water mains in the last few years. The question now is … how far have we've come in fixing our communities' underlying problems and what action must we take to continue building a stronger Canada? Get the answers from Berry Vrbanovic.
