Orangeville, ON- David Tilson MP and Mayor Lorie Haddock announced funding today for Blind Line reconstruction. The project is just one example of both governments’ commitment to stimulating the Ontario economy through the creation of jobs in our communities.

The project will enhance local transportation infrastructure and create jobs for Ontarians.

“Our government is making the progress Canada needs, distributing funding as fast as possible and getting projects started for the 2009 construction season,” said David Tilson MP. “I am pleased that this project will help the local economy thrive and ensure local roads remain in peak operating condition.”

“Under the leadership of Premier Dalton McGuinty, Ontario is leading the way,” said Liz Sandals MPP for Guelph-Wellington, who was unable to attend the announcement. “We are creating jobs and the funding announced today will soon lead to enhanced infrastructure within the community- creating a competitive advantage that attracts business and strengthens our economy today and into the future.”

The governments of Ontario, Canada and the Town of Mono will each invest $507,667 into the Blind Line reconstruction project for a total of $1, 523,000. The section being worked on runs from Country Road 10 to County Road 16. 

“The Town of Mono wishes to express their thanks to David. We are pleased to once again be a successful applicant,” said Mayor Lorie Haddock. “We are excited to get the shovels in the ground on this well deserved project.”

This project is one of 1373 across the province that will break ground thanks to $2.26 billion in joint federal and provincial funding. Together with municipal contributions, the total investment in local infrastructure improvements under this intake exceeds $3.4 billion in Ontario alone.
