I am thrilled to be leading Rural Roots, an outreach campaign designed to engage you in discussions on how to reconnect with Rural Ontario.
For the next year, we will be reaching out to communities across the province to get feedback on how we can better understand the issues you face and the feedback you are hearing.
We want to know the issues that are unique to your community and the opportunities and challenges that you face so we can develop policies that address the needs and issues on the ground. We want to better support rural riding associations with services that are tailored to your unique needs.
Our outreach will include in-person consultation sessions, telephone town halls, webinars and this website. This site is a tool to keep you connected to Rural Roots. Here you will find information on upcoming events and discussions. Most importantly, this site is a tool for you to participate in this important discussion.
This important discussion can only happen with your help. Have a look around and leave us your feedback. We want to hear your thoughts and ideas for the future, so please take the time to drop us a line.
Together, we will build a stronger rural Ontario. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
