Four long-term care homes, more funding for hospitals, more internet. I’m very happy with how the last four years have gone, and I’m very humbled and honoured to be representing Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock again.”

Laurie Scott watches as election results come in, and celebrates her re-election to a sixth term as Progressive Conservative MPP for the riding of Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock. Scott will be part of a second majority PC government led by Doug Ford.

“Lots of people were telling us they’re voting NDP for the first time ever,” said Barbara Doyle, HKLB NDP candidate. “Provincially, everything that was broken pre-COVID was more broken post-COVID, such as healthcare and long-term care – it really highlighted how vulnerable we are.”

Kerstin Kelly, HKLB Ontario Party candidate, is hosting an open house at the campaign office at 12 Lindsay St. S. in Lindsay tonight.

“We were in Haliburton and stopped in all the doors in town,” Kelly told the Echo/Times. “We got great reception in Haliburton. The people there have been particularly hard hit because tourism is such a big factor in that area. With being closed down for two years, that was hard on businesses.”

A press release sent earlier today notes Kelly announced her candidacy in March for the provincial election and is expecting a win tonight.

“I’m expecting an upset in this riding,” Kelly said.
