MONTREAL — The airport in St-Hubert got a financial boost on Monday as Federal Infrastructure Minister Denis Lebel announced an additional $17 million of funding over the next three years.
With Longueuil Mayor Caroline St-Hilaire at his side, Lebel said the money would go towards repairing one runway and three taxiways. The additional funds would also go towards improving the airfield drainage systems and electrical enhancements.
Lebel said that he hoped these improvements would increase safety at the airport.
The funding comes via the federal Transport Canada’s Airports Capital Assistance Program.
