1 Experience Using Innovative Finance for Major Projects Northern Border Finance Conference Chicago, Illinois May 14 th, 2007 Richard Fyfe, COO Gateway Program, BC

2 Public Private Partnerships: Top-Down Support “Having modern, reliable infrastructure in place allows businesses to invest with greater certainty, thus furthering the adjustment process. This may mean the use of private funds to develop public infrastructure projects...and now is the time to encourage this type of investment, given our climate of low nominal interest rates, and the presence of large pension funds that are searching for these kinds of investment opportunities.” David Dodge, Governor of the Bank of Canada June 21, 2006

3 Public Private Partnerships: Commitment “Since we launched the public/private initiative in 2002, we have actually either started or completed $4.7 billion in new P3 projects...that is the future of Development in the Province of British Columbia: Better value, on time, on budget. So, in the future, we’re going to work with you, but we will insist that Partnerships BC look at major Projects and the base case in British Columbia will be P3’s unless Partnerships BC says there’s a compelling reason to do otherwise. P3 will be the Standard in British Columbia for three reasons: They work for you, they work for us, and most importantly, they work for the taxpayers that we work for.” British Columbia Premier Gordon Campbell - Speech to UBCM, October 27, 2006
