QUEBEC — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a new funding deal with Quebec that will see the federal government contribute $924 million toward public transit projects in Montreal over three years, CBC News reports.

The funding announced Tuesday will go toward fixing existing infrastructure, while a second phase of funding for new projects, which could include the light-rail transit system or extension of the Metro line, will be announced later.

The federal government had previously committed to providing $775 million for public transit infrastructure in the Montreal area over the next three years. For the full story, click here.
