Cornwall - Jul. 12, 2011 - Hundreds of jobs have been created in SDSG and Cornwall as a result of provincial infrastructure investments in local priorities like

  • $8,777,861 for local road and bridge improvements

  • $1,700,000 for the construction of a new emergency and medical services headquarters in Cornwall.

  • $9,221,465 for the construction of a new multi-sport facility in Cornwall.

  • $5,000,000 for upgrades to Moulinette Hall at St. Lawrence College’s Cornwall Campus.

    Infrastructure stimulus investments in Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry are creating and supporting 900 jobs. The province has invested a total of $27,425,440 toward infrastructure stimulus projects in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry.

    But the PC Party and Tim Hudak opposed these projects. Hudak even said he didn’t think investing in infrastructure to create jobs and stimulate the economy during the recession was the right approach (TVO’s The Agenda, March 31, 2009).

    “The Hudak PCs are a threat to jobs in our community,” said MPP Jim Brownell.

    “The Hudak PCS, didn’t support saving 400,000 auto sector jobs during the recession, and they don’t support investing in local projects to create jobs in our community.”

    “Because of the investments made by the McGuinty Government and the hard work of Ontarians, our economy is turning the corner. More Ontarians are at work today and Ontario families & seniors will benefit from new and better infrastructure in the future,” Brownell stated.

    “The PCs have a long history of cutting jobs, hospitals and schools that working families need, said Liberal candidate Mark MacDonald and ‘I believe in an Ontario that is worth fighting for,” MacDonald stated.
