Brent Devolin reminded the public at a recent meeting the Ontario government, and all party leaders, shot down a one per cent increase to the H.S.T. to cut into the nearly $5 billion shortfall. Devolin says the request was shot down this summer and adds none of the party leaders had a solution. //www.myhaliburtonnow.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Devolin-1.mp3 Devolin also says with a provincial election coming up next June, lower-tier politicians will want concrete answers on how the deficit on roads on bridges will be addressed. Last week, Minden learned its roads department is on target for an approximately $260,000 deficit.
