Cornwall - Sep. 28, 2011 - Liberal Candidate Mark A. MacDonald laid out his proposal for a new highway linking Cornwall to Ottawa. "This new highway is important. When I'm at Queen's Park, I will make sure this gets the proper attention by pushing for this. I won't stop until it is considered, seriously as an option," MacDonald stated.

MacDonald's proposal, which would significantly reduce travel time, will see the new highway stretch from the 401 near Long Sault to the 417 near Embrum. "There are three issues that greatly concern me, the safety factor with our present road, the time it takes to get to Ottawa, and the overall needs of our local economy," MacDonald said. "This new proposal will address all these concerns and make sure that SDSG is well positioned to meet the growing demand for our economy and our residents."

"I ran this proposal past Kathleen Wynne, the Minister of Transportation, just days ago and she indicated that she would be willing to discuss it with me further after the election. While there is still much work to do, I was excited to have a positive response on this worthwhile project."

The number of people travelling to and from Ottawa for work, medical appointments, shopping, entertainment and leisure is increasing, and with our massive new distribution centres nearing completion the demand for workers and the movement of goods will present an opportunity for economic and population growth.

"We would not have our new hospitals, health centres and arenas if the NDP and PCs had their way. Both the NDP and PCs would take us backwards. We need to keep moving forward with fresh ideas that build on Ontario Liberal accomplishments," said MacDonald.
