News Federal government puts money into Haliburton Rail Trail and Wilberforce Curling Club SHARE ON: Kenny Trenton, contributor, Thursday, Aug. 24th, 2017 Ottawa is pumping some money into two infrastructure projects in the county. Northumberland-Peterborough South M.P. Kim Rudd made the announcing alongside Haliburton, Kawartha Lakes, Brock M.P. Jamie Schmale at the county offices. Haliburton County will get $100,000 towards the repair of the Junction Bridge on the Haliburton Rail Trail, while Highlands East is getting almost $24,000 towards upgrading the Wilberforce Curling Club. Schamle says he appreciates the funding since rural communities don’t have the tax base larger cities do. //www.myhaliburtonnow.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Schmale-1.mp3 Schmale thanked the government for the funding. Rudd, a liberal M.P., says small investments can go a long way. //www.myhaliburtonnow.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Rudd-1.mp3 The money comes from the government’s Canada 150 Community Infrastructure program.
