As the Provincial election quickly approaches, on June 12th, Halton Region has prepared a questionnaire for the Provincial election candidates from the ridings of Burlington, Halton, Oakville and Wellington-Halton Hills on the issues that are important to Halton residents. The questionnaire deadline was May 23rd, and the received responses are now online at www.halton.ca/ontarioelection2014.

Questions asked were based on Halton Region’s advocacy plan—Advocating for a Strong Halton. This plan was developed to highlight and provide information to our residents and the provincial and federal governments regarding some of the challenges and critical issues related to Halton’s future. Issues such as infrastructure, costs associated with growth, housing, public health and provincial cost sharing agreements are all issues that have been identified by residents as important to them and their families.

This questionnaire is an important tool in understanding the candidates’ positions on the issues that are important to Halton residents. I would like to thank all the candidates who took the time to complete the survey and I hope residents find this to be a useful tool prior to heading out to vote.
