The United States is not alone in its need to confront major infrastructure troubles. In fact, to our north, the Canada Federation of Municipalities estimates that the cost of overhauling their own aging infrastructure is over $123 billion, with 60% of that representing work to everything from water and sewer systems to highways and ports. More significantly, thanks to growth in many of the country's cities, new transit and sewer needs are estimated to cost an additional $115 billion.
