May 2, 2017 by

The Eastern Ontario Wardens’ Caucus hosted their federal representatives to a breakfast meeting Monday morning on Parliament Hill.

They gathered to discuss priorities and partnership opportunities that would directly benefit rural Eastern Ontario.

Chair Robert Quaiff spoke on behalf of those he represents about the importance of a regional approach and the need for increased collaboration between the federal government and rural municipalities.

They discussed several issues including infrastructure funding for roads and bridges, and network gaps in cellular coverage and mobile broadband.

Leeds-Grenville Warden Robin Jones called the meeting, “a great step forward in our mutual collaboration.”
