Who are the people of Haliburton—Kawartha Lakes—Brock?
The people here are as strong as our riding is beautiful. We put our hands to hard work, our voices to causes, and our hearts and minds to the challenges we face. We take care of our neighbours. We teach our children how to learn good things, grow good crops, make good choices, and respect those who have done these things a good deal longer than they have! We are a polite people who roll up our sleeves for the good of our towns, and we take our weekends seriously. We hear loons and frogs when we sleep, but we’re a cozy drive from Toronto when we want a louder scene. We are farmers, machinists, protectors, and conservationists. We are gardeners, artists, doctors, trades people, and store owners. We pitch in and we take pride in our old buildings, stretches of natural land, and common sense. We have history, morals, and intention. And we know how to enjoy life here together.
We want to hear from you.
