My Elves and I enjoyed meeting with everyone along the route of this year's Belleville Santa Claus Parade Sunday evening. It was nice to see so many faces along Bridge Street to celebrate the holiday season.
Our government has provided Quinte Health Care an additional $5 million in 2019-2020 funding to operate its four hospitals in Belleville, Trenton, Prince Edward County and Bancroft. I made the announcement with Hastings-Lennox and Addington MPP Daryl Kramp at Trenton Memorial Hospital Oct. 18. For more information, see the News Releases page.
This morning, I joined Belleville Mayor Mitch Panciuk to announce our government has approved the City's request for a Class EA exemption to speed up needed widening of Bell Boulevard to four lanes from Sidney Street to Wallbridge-Loyalist Road. The Province has also committed $1,666,500 to project costs, pending a federal contribution, through the ICIP Rural and Northern stream. For more, see the news releases page.
