” “Let’s make sure that as we call for federal dollars — recognizing there’s no money tree and there’s one taxpayer — that when we get those federal dollars that we’re utilizing them in a way that’s providing the maximum economic benefit, but also addressing the infrastructure needs of our province,” Wotherspoon said Tuesday.

People could be put to work on other infrastructure projects to stimulate the economy, such as fixing schools or highways, he said.
