Visits Milton to listen to residents

Ontario Liberal Party Leader Bonnie Crombie visited Coffee Culture in Milton in April to hear from Milton residents on what issues matter to them. People talked about community safety, all Day GO Transit, Autism Funding, education and Healthcare as well as affordable housing. It was a broad conversation about both local and provincial issues. She was joined by Milton OLP Candidate Galen Naidoo Harris who was there both to listen to residents as well as give his own feedback.

The Milton Rotary Spring Gala occurred on April 13th in Milton. Miltonians enjoyed a three course meal with beverages along with the sweet sounds of Milton’s own live band, the Groovy Brothers. The sit-down dinner had a Hawaiian Luau theme with Lai’s provided to all guests upon entrance. The night of food and fun was in support of two worthy local causes: Townsend Smith Foundation Hospice and Darling Home for Kids.

Sikh Heritage Month was offcially proclaimed at Milton Town Hall with Mayor Krantz on behalf of the town. Gurmail S Saggu helped and local Milton and Halton residents and groups helped organize the event with volunteers and Milton Town Staff. Many dignitaries were there with a large audience of Milton Sikh residents as well as guests from surrounding areas. Guests were also served with tea, samosas, tim bits and sweet desserts.

Milton and Halton region in general have long stood against the proposed CN intermodal yard, a project under heavy scrutiny since 2015. While recognizing the importance of intermodal transportation in the national supply chain, our community’s opposition stems from the proposed yard’s dangerous and unprecedented location, which according to the environmental impact assessment agency’s findings, presents significant adverse environmental effects and unmitigable risks to human health.

Every first Thursday of the month Milton Grace Anglican Church hosts a free Milton Community Dinner that all residents are welcome to join in. It’s in the spirit of human fellowship coming together over a home cooked meal. Each month a different group of volunteers helps prepare and serve the meal. March’s meal was prepared by volunteers from the Milton District Hospital Auxiliary The food for the meal was donated by Food for Life.

Premier Ford in July 2020 in Milton said “I am not in favour of (the Campbellville quarry). I believe in governing for the people. And when the people don’t want something you don’t do it. It’s very simple. I know the Mayor doesn’t want it, no one wants it. I don’t want it. We are going to make sure It doesn’t happen one way or another”.
