Local MPP Puts Pressure on Province to Expand Busy Kemptville Road

A petition with more than 300 signatures in support of expanding County Road 43 in Kemptville are now in the hands of the provincial government.

Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark tabled the petitions at Queen's Park yesterday (September 12th) to press the Wynne government to provide infrastructure funding necessary to expand the busy two-lane roadway to four lanes.

The petition was created earlier in the summer in response to the province's refusal to support the $30-million project which has been the United Counties top infrastructure priority for the last five years.

The government now has 24 sitting days to respond in writing to the petition.
