Liberals say internet is infrastructure
“Rural infrastructure like internet, roads and water services in every rural town needs to be modernized,” said Liberal Rural Caucus Chair Mark Eyking at a Feb 5 roundtable on rural-urban issues. “That’s why we’re setting a goal of achieving full high-speed internet connectivity in every corner of the country.” It is nice to hear internet described as infrastructure, which, of course, it is. But the Liberals will have to go well beyond this goal to distinguish themselves from their rivals. We need a national digital strategy developed with the full participation of Canadians. Liberals might consider this a good place to start putting together a vision of our digital future.
