Consider This Sentence

The following sentence appears in an article on the CTV News website. “The federal government is launching a new $6 billion ‘Canada Housing Infrastructure Fund’ meant to speed up construction and upgrade key components needed to support building more homes such as waste and water infrastructure.”


My rewrite: “Today, at a press conference in Dartmouth, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the creation of the six billion dollar, ‘Canada Housing Infrastructure Fund.’ The fund will help municipalities finance the expansion of water and wastewater utilities to support new housing developments. Provincial access to the fund is contingent on provinces acceding to a list of controversial demands.”
