Cornwall ON – Liberal candidate for SD&SG in the upcoming Ontario Provincial election came out fighting today with a video released on You Tube. Pillar one focuses on the widening of Highway 138 which is the major artery between Cornwall and Ottawa that has seen its fair share of traffic fatalities over the years.
“Like Jim Brownell before me, it’s important to fight for local issues and today I am announcing that the infrastructure spending must continue with upgrades to Highway #138 and also Nick Kaneb Drive from Second St. to Montreal Rd.”, MacDonald stated.
“The fact is that the PC’s voted against our hospitals, health centres and sports facilities and they would vote against the upgrade to a much needed four lane’s on Highway #138”, MacDonald said.
“Extending Nick Kaneb Drive through to Montreal Road will open up all kinds of development for the east end of Cornwall and it would also encourage growth in the Le Village area”, he went on to say.
“The Ontario economy is strong and we must stay on track, is the message I am hearing and it’s coming in loud and clear when you look at the economic situations that are happening all around us”, MacDonald said in closing.
