TO the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:-
WHEREAS County Road 49 was named the Worst Road in Ontario in CAA's Annual Survey
AND WHEREAS County Road 49 is a major artery in Prince Edward County and connected to a provincially maintained bridge over the Bay of Quinte
AND WHEREAS the Premier has challenged the Agri-food industry to create 120,000 jobs and entrepreneurs in Prince Edward County are doing their part to meet that challenge
AND WHEREAS infrastructure is essential to the County's economic development and the lifestyle of County residents
AND WHEREAS Prince Edward County is a municipality of approximately 25,000 people, has over 1,100 kilometres of road infrastructure and needs a provincial partner to complete the 22 Million dollar project that would be rebuilding County Road 49
WE the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly as follows:
That the Ministers of Transportation and Infrastructure meet with County representatives to develop a timeline to fix County Road 49 and commit the necessary funding to ensure that this vital tourism artery in Eastern Ontario is able to serve all Ontarians for years to come.
