Ontario, Canada, will spend $1.1 billion on new infrastructure, Premier Dalton McGuinty said Monday. He noted that a new law that allows the province to spend surplus funds made the project possible. "Just as the big boost to infrastructure I've announced today reflects last year's strong economic performance, the economic challenges we're facing this year mean I can safely predict I won't make this kind of announcement twelve months from now," McGuinty said.
