Over the last several years I have been proud to be part of the annual Halloween tradition taking part in the Milton Haunted House at the Milton Mall.
This year once again we were honoured to be recognized as one of the many donors to the Milton District Hospital Foundation along with our main organizer Rick Di Lorenzo, Colin Best and our main sponsor Tiger Jeet Singh from the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation.
After speaking with my family, friends, colleagues and members of the Milton PC Riding Association, I have decided to announce my intention to seek the nomination for the Ontario PC Party to represent the new riding of Milton.
My family and I have called Milton our home for close to 14 years and we have seen many changes in our community. I have the honour of representing Milton at both the local and regional levels of government since 2010 fighting for Milton’s best interests.
The Province of Ontario has deemed Milton to be one of the “Places to Grow” and we have seen many years of intensive growth with many more to come.
It seems that all roads are leading to Milton, but the roadblocks to creating a complete community begin at Queens Park.
Between rising hydro costs, multiple OPP investigations in the Premiers office, skyrocketing debt levels or here at home with a lack of schools, lack of support for transit or a solution to parking issues at our only GO station, inaction on Laurier University & the Milton Education Village or the complete lack of acknowledgment about the CN Intermodal issue, it feels like the province has left us behind.
Over the coming days and weeks, I will outline a number of the concerns I have heard from Miltonians and PC party members. What needs to get done first is win the nomination.
You can go online to https://secure.ontariopc.com/Partyjoin and sign up you, your family and your friends.
Just $10 per membership.
You can also pick up a membership form from one of my campaign team members and fill it out in person.
The party hasnt yet decided on a date for the nomination but it is expected to be soon….so stay tuned.
Ontario and Milton deserve better representation at Queens Park.
Help nominate me to be your PC candidate for Milton.

As the sun begins to set on another Ramadan celebration, Milton residents got together at the Thompson Arena tonight for the annual EID gala organized by Event Ontario with Ayesha & Naeem Tariq.
Vendors from all over Milton showcasing their goods as well as henna painting, food and fun times for the kids.
Thank you to the organizers who invited us to attend and take part in this celebration. So great to see so many friends attending each year.
EID Mubarak to all those celebrating the end of Ramadan and best wishes to your families.
The weather was a bit unpredictable this year but the love and passion for Canada was no surprise this year for Canada Day in Milton.
It started off with the annual breakfast for the veterans put on by the local Knights of Columbus. Pancakes, sausages and back bacon were a plenty as we honoured the veterans and remembered those who fought and didn’t return keeping our country safe and free.
This was followed by the march into the fairgrounds with our vets which always brings a smile to our faces. Due to the weather we had to hurry back to town hall for the swearing in of new Canadians – including local Miltonians the Attew Family who took the oath of citizenship.
Milton MP Lisa Raitt and Mayor Gord Krantz were among the dignitaries in attendance to welcome our new Canadians in a very emotional ceremony.
There were always lots of activities for families and kids of all ages at the fairgrounds and the Milton Canada Day committee once again did an outstanding job.
Fireworks always end off the celebration and once agin, they didn’t disappoint.
Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy the celebrations and thanks to the volunteer committee and sponsors for making this happen.
Happy Canada Day Milton.
