CORNWALL Ontario – Nearby Prescott Russell MPP Grant Crack rode shotgun with a few ministers of the Wynne Government as they brought a few bags of money to Cornwall to help with our failing infrastructure and flooding issues.
In particular the reconstruction of sewers on Eleventh, Grand and Miron, and redirection of sanitary flow to another drainage area where sufficient capacity can be developed.
The $2 million dollars was said to help with construction jobs in the area. SD&G if of course held by PC MPP Jim McDonell.
I know I’ve only worked in Journalism for five years, and do practice the lowly art of Gonzo journalism, but maybe someone will explain to me why our MPP wasn’t on hand for this although MPP Crack is much more respectful of CFN and our audience than MPP McDonell.
“I am proud to be part of a government that invests in infrastructure such as the reconstruction of sewers, roads and bridges. This project will benefit the City of Cornwall and the riding of Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry.”
Grant Crack, MPP for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell
So dear viewers of CFN; is this election ramping up attempts to buy a few votes as a Spring election approaches, or simply a government doing its job and providing the services that we pay for with our taxes? And if so do they deserve a cookie for doing that?
UPDATE 3:01 PM
We were informed that our MPP was in fact present at the event. He was not quoted or represented in the release we worked from.
