Our MPP took the opportunity to talk about our roads on the first day back at the Provincial Legislature. Norm Miller tabled the petitions he had been collecting for improved road maintenance on winter roads. Miller says he was expecting to hand in about 1,000, but was pleased to hand in much more.

Miller says there is timeframe, when the government has to respond. However, he says that wasn’t his main goal when bringing the petitions forward.

The signatures were collected across the riding, and in other regions of central and northern Ontario, who’ve experienced challenging conditions on roads during the past two winter seasons. Miller says he is encouraging more people to sign.

Miller says he looks forward to the response from the Minister of Transportation and hopes a solution can be reached. Click here for a copy of the petition.
