Why did the Canadian government spend $10 billion on green carpet cleaning?
By The Canadian PressMarch 29, 2019 05:17:47While Canadians are already getting their annual green carpets, the federal government has decided to spend an additional $10 million on the effort.
The money is intended to buy green carpet tiles that can be used to cover floors and bathrooms in buildings.
The green carpet can be bought for $30 per tile, while a carpet made of wood, stone or bamboo can be paid for at $75.
Green carpets are not cheap.
Each square foot of floor space is $1,400, while the cost of a tile for a kitchen or bathroom is $400.
Green carpet tiles are typically made of hardwoods or wood that are more expensive to produce.
They’re also typically more expensive than tiles used to fill kitchens or bathrooms.
This week, the government said it plans to spend another $2.3 billion on infrastructure projects, including roads, bridges, transit and public transit systems.
The federal budget for the year ending in March 2019, released this week, said infrastructure spending would rise by $1.4 billion.
The budget included $500 million to build a new bridge in southern Ontario to replace the one that was destroyed in a recent tornado.
The government has said it expects the new bridge to cost more than $3 billion.
The Liberals and Conservatives are spending more on green carpet cleaning than previous governments, with the Liberals pledging to spend $2 billion on the project in 2020.
The Conservatives have yet to announce their spending plans for the $10-billion project, and the Conservatives have not said whether they would continue the spending.
