Minden residents Ryan Mortell and Faye Adamson plan to celebrate their wedding day on Sept. 12 this year though perhaps differently than planned – they have cancelled their venue booking at the Ganaraska Forest Centre due to the unknown future of what gatherings might look like this summer./Submitted photo

We’ve come a long way

To the Editor

When RTO (Rural Transportation Options) began as a committee of Environment Haliburton! and we started to talk about public transportation in Haliburton County we were greeted with skepticism and disbelief. And now we have $50000 allocated to create an implementation plan for public transportation in Haliburton County. We have come a long way thanks to the work of RTO part of the Haliburton County Community Co-Operative the transportation taskforce who led by Sue Shikaze and Michael Andrews gave a concrete vision to a public transit system in the county as well as county council and staff who saw and have acted on that vision.
We’ve gone from skepticism and disbelief to ‘’when and how.” Well done all of us.
