The local Conservative candidate for MP says all of the municipalities in Haliburton Kawartha Lakes Brock are feeling the pressure when it comes to infrastructure. Jamie Schmale says things like the federal gas tax funding will continue to flow to municipalities to help with those costs.

Schmale says through the program municipalities get a cheque every year, which they can spend however they want.

He says they’ve also made other investments in the county, and that will continue.

Schmale is defending the Tory seat in this riding, and challenging him is Green Party candidate Bill MacCallum, Liberal David Marquis and NDP Mike Perry.
