Dear Friends in Wellington-Halton Hills:
Together, we are confronting the COVID-19 public health emergency. It is unprecedented in most of our lifetimes, but we are up to this challenge.
We continue to stay at home as much as possible, and practice physical distancing when we must be out. While this has slowed the spread of the coronavirus, we must not let up, we are saving lives when we stay home or stay clear.
The Ontario Legislature has been called into session on three occasions since the crisis began. As your MPP, I have been there each time as part of a smaller representation of members and staff.
While the opposition MPPs urge the Government to do more, there has been unanimous support for the Government’s proposals as of today, and overall agreement to move forward together.
Where there has been rancour, there is now respect; where there has been controversy, there is now collaboration.
The Province has committed to a substantial increase in the health care budget, support for small businesses, and relief for families and individuals with new announcements daily.
Our municipal, provincial and federal governments are also cooperating and using their areas of expertise to ensure we get through this challenge, together.

During this time, my staff and I are working remotely but as always, we are still available by phone or e-mail to help on matters involving the Provincial Government.
Until I see you again, keep well, stay safe, and take care.
Ted Arnott, MPP
