Obviously the constitution does not prevent the Federal government from providing support to cities (although, theoretically, it could be used to do so). My point is that the Federal government has no constitutional OBLIGATION to provide funding for cities. It will only do so, and has only done so in the past, when politically expedient. That is why Flaherty announced $1b in much needed funding for urban infrastructure today - to shore up his party's weak support amongst urban Canadians.
