“Basically, the new Building Canada Fund is why I’m touring around – just letting municipalities know that there’s money out there to ask for [in regard to] infrastructure, giving some the specifics about what project qualify [and] what don’t, and just explaining the fund,” MP Zimmer says over the phone in Dawson Creek – a stop made after already visiting Williams Like, Quesnel, and Prince George.The money is given to smaller communities province-wide looking to improve basic infrastructure. Some examples can include roads, pipes in the grounds, water and sewer.Once approved, one-third of funds come from the feds, another one-third from the province, and the final one-third from the municipality asking for funds. If it’s a highway project, the money is split 50/50 between the feds and the province.- Advertisement -“We’re kind of in a tight spot in terms of timing,” MP Zimmer goes on to explain. ”We couldn’t proceed with any asks [sic] before the municipal elections because municipalities and councils change.”The deadline to apply for the new Building Canada Fund is February 18, 2015.“We want shovels in the ground as soon as we can get them going in the spring of 2015.”Advertisement The federal government has a total of $109 million to be allocated, and when calculated with the shared component of the province, the total is raised to $218 million, according to MP Zimmer.

But I have to look at my situation. I have to take charge of my own future.“And if I’m sat doing what I’m doing at this moment in time, I just hope that the club will respect that when it comes to the time.”Cahill admits he can have few complaints as the Blues have won five of five Premier League games ahead of Sunday’s clash at West Ham United.He was in the Chelsea squad for the first time this season, but did not feature, as the Blues won 1-0 at PAOK in Europa League Group L on Thursday night.

Your career’s short enough as it is.“I’m in great condition at the minute, I’ve not wasted my days, I’ve not wasted the time when I haven’t been playing. “I’ve been training even harder, in the gym. I know I can play week-in, week-out, not a problem.“I’ve got maximum respect for everybody here at the football club, for the fans and all the players.“But sometimes you have to make tough decisions to keep your career going forward.” The biggest market value losers in 2019, including Bale and ex-Liverpool star Cavani ‘agrees’ to join new club and will complete free transfer next summer Cahill with the Premier League trophy in 2017 The defender has a knack for scoring crucial goals from set-pieces LATEST 3 RANKED Latest Transfer Stories from talksport.com moving on 3 Man United joined by three other clubs in race for Erling Haaland REVEALED Where every Premier League club needs to strengthen in January Gary Cahill has admitted he will leave Chelsea in January if his first-team exile under Maurizio Sarri continues.The defender, who will be 33 in December is out of contract at the end of the season and is yet to play a single minute of action under the former Napoli boss.

You’re all set! “That meant that every cause and every project he was involved in was tempered by clear, well-negotiated and respectful interaction with everyone on both sides of the table.” Underwood became the district’s general manager and chief executive officer after playing a key role in a crucial effort regarding California’s share of Colorado River supplies as well as negotiating one of the nation’s largest habitat-conservation programs. The program covered 27 species along more than 450 miles of the lower Colorado. The 50-year program protects the storage, release and diversion of Colorado River water from Lake Mead to the Mexico border from interruptions because of endangered species issues. “As a former commissioner of Interior’s Bureau of Reclamation and a major architect of the Lower Colorado River Multispecies Conservation Plan, Dennis was a creative and dynamic force in improving the management of Western water and promoting environmental protection and enhancement,” Interior Secretary Gale Norton said in a statement. Bannister said the Metropolitan Water District would have to “work hard to maintain the spirit of his career and to honor him by moving forward thoughtfully and with purpose, being mindful of our role as a steward for the public and the environment.” RANCHO CUCAMONGA – Dennis B. Underwood, a Western water expert and former U.S. Bureau of Reclamation commissioner who this year took over as general manager of the giant Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, has died. He was 60. Underwood, who was selected in April to lead the water district, died Wednesday at his Alta Loma home after a battle with cancer, MWD spokesman Bob Muir said Thursday. The Metropolitan Water District is a cooperative of 26 cities and water agencies serving 18 million people in six Southern California counties. It imports water from the Colorado River and Northern California to supplement local supplies. “The water world has lost one of its most accomplished and humble leaders,” district board Chairman Wes Bannister said in a statement. “The underlying theme of Dennis’ entire career was to balance needs with grace.
