Jamie Schmale says he plans to promote skilled trade jobs in Haliburton County if he is nominated as the Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock MP candidate.

Schmale noticed people’s interest in skilled trades at a meeting in January. If elected he says his goal is to help connect those people with the employers in Haliburton County looking for workers.

He also plans to work with the Municipalities and all other parties involved to ensure the Trent-Severn Waterway is a positive resource for the county.

Schmale recently announced he is seeking nominations from party members who will vote later this year.
