Recent local media reports stated that the Conservatives feel this Riding is “critical” for them and attempted to highlight the negative. It’s important to point out the positive and that with the help of our well respected MPP Jim Brownell, we have done pretty well locally.
The Hospital upgrades,new Health Centre, Arenas, new roads, Paramedic Station, Waste Water Treatment Plant, Hospice, College upgrade, OPP Station, South Stormont Town Offices, St. Lawrence Parks upgrades and various Trillium Grants, are just a few positive things.
For the first time in over 20 years we have managed to build some much needed social housing units, both in Cornwall and Williamsburg.
Not too bad of a record considering all this was done during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.
It is true that this Riding is critical, it’s critical that we keep moving forward.
