TRURO - Federal funds will not be held up by the prorogation of parliament, says Scott Armstrong.
"Even in prorogation the government still runs as it always would," the Cumberland Colchester Musquodoboit Valley told the Truro Daily News Friday. "It's not like a byelection or an election where there's a writ dropped where you can't make announcements."
Prime Minister Stephen Harper prorogued Parliament last week, shutting down the House of Commons and the Senate for the next two months. It had some in the community wondering if it would impact the potential announcement of funds to the Colchester County civic centre project.
"Prorogation will have absolutely no effect on the timing of any announcements," Armstrong said.
He added "significant progress" is being made as the file works through the bureaucratic system in Ottawa.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    To recap, this is an announcement that the non-announced-but-promised-to-be-announced Civic Centre funds still could be announced.

    I'd say they are right around the corner...there'll be a ton of goodies handed out, some Olympic glory, and an election call.

    Meanwhile, the Conservatives are going for the Gold with world-record debt and deficit.
