Our local MPP is mad the government isn’t dealing with the energy poverty in her riding.

Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock MPP Laurie Scott says the Ontario Association of Food Banks has a new report showing this crisis continues to grow in our province.

Scott wants the government to deal with the mess in our local municipalities.

She says the programs are only a drop in the bucket. Scott says municipalities in her riding deal with more expensive delivery charges compared to urban areas.
