Halton MPP Says Provincial Government “evasive” when it comes to MDH

Flipping through the online version of the Halton Compass, I came across an article in the November 11th edition about Halton MPP Ted Chudleigh asking the Health Minister Deb Matthews and anyone else involved about answers to Milton’s questions … when are we getting the hospital?

Today Is Election Day

Keep Your Eyes Open

An alert citizen in Milton is being credited for helping nab a car thief earlier this month.  Here is the story from the Milton Canadian Champion. This goes to show that keeping your eyes open and reporting anything suspicious can always be helpful.  This also serves as a reminder to everyone to make sure your…
