Mayors in the Greater Toronto Area have asked the provincial and federal governments to let them know by March 1st how much financial aid they will get for the clean-up of damage done in the pre-Christmas ice storm. But Municipal Affairs Minister Linda Jeffrey says it could take months for a decision to be made. Bernard Trottier is Conservative Party Member of Parliament for Etobicoke-Lakeshore. He says the federal government is ready to do its part to help but the province must make a formal request. The damage done to GTA communities is estimated at more than 250 million dollars, including 106 million dollars for Toronto alone.
