Politicians representing Leeds and Grenville are launching a petition to promote a local expansion project.

Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark will be joined by Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes MP Gord Brown for the formal launching of a petition. The petition will support an expansion project for County Road 43. MPP Clark and MP Brown will meet at 2:00pm tomorrow at the traffic circle adjacent to the Giant Tiger parking lot in Kemptville to officially start the initiative.

Representatives of MPP Clark say the petition will also ask the Ontario government to assist with funding for the expansion.
