Where did the stimulus funds go in Leeds-Grenville?

April 13, 2011

Mark King, legislative assistant to Leeds-Grenville MP Gord Brown, sent along the following list in response to my request for details of the expenditures under the Economic Stimulus Package of the last two years.  Burnbrae is a large egg producer.  The provincial government kicked in $.9 million as well to the purchase of egg processing equipment.  If you look on Google Earth for the North Grenville Public Library you find a photo of a parking lot.  4 million dollars later, Kemptville has a lovely library.

Your tax dollars at work.
