Edward Mountain MSP calls on Scottish Government to invest in vital canal infrastructure
Scottish Canals' £70m shortfall has already meant the closure of the Edinburgh-Glasgow Canal. Continuing financial difficulties threaten our waterways in the Highlands and across the whole of Scotland. I welcome the First Minister's announcement of an extra £1.6m but this is nowhere near the total needed to repair our canals. I am continuing to challenge the Scottish Government to protect this vital infrastructure.
