Ted Arnott attended the May 14, 2010 Groundbreaking Ceremony of the County of
Wellington O.P.P. Operations Centre, located in Centre Wellington. Mr. Arnott delivered
the following remarks:
Good morning everyone.
It’s great to be here, and I’m glad to join with, Members of County Council and Staff,
and Members of Local Council and Staff, as we turn the ground to launch another
exciting project here in the County of Wellington.
Today we celebrate our Wellington County O.P.P., and the new Operations Centre
which will soon house their activities. We celebrate the work they do, to keep our
communities, our homes, our businesses, our farms, and our families, safe.
As the Member of Provincial Parliament for Wellington-Halton Hills, and privileged to
serve in the Ontario Legislature, I want to express my sincere appreciation for all in our
Ontario Provincial Police, for your professionalism, your team work, and most of all,
Your job is always challenging, but occasionally thankless, and sometimes dangerous.
Therefore we shouldn’t miss a chance to show our gratitude, so that the pride you
demonstrate each time you put on the uniform, is returned in equal measure with the
public respect you have earned, and so richly deserve.
