Dana Porter contributed his insights to this issue through an article on shifting government priorities due to the pandemic. “We’re seeing now, as in past crises, the government ramping up to improve the economy; so, a move to shovel-ready projects,” said Dana. He notes that projects involving expropriating property involves a huge lead time. “By the time you see a shovel in the ground, 85 or 90 per cent of the work has been done in terms of planning and approvals,” Dana added.
