BC-backed petition aims to secure federal funding for historic places

Cloverdale-Langley City MP John Aldag is sponsoring a federal e-petition to secure significant funding for historic places in the 2019 Federal Budget.

Petition E-1778 calls upon the Federal Minister of Environment and Climate Change to demonstrate federal leadership for historic places by working with the Minister of Finance to create a multi-million dollar fund in Budget 2019 to support the efforts of Indigenous peoples, charities and not for profits to save and renew historic places, and encourage private sector investment and heritage philanthropy.
