Statement from MP Larry Miller – Funding for SWIFT Project

Owen Sound, ON – Larry Miller, Member of Parliament for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, issued the following statement following the recent announcement of $180 million in funding from the Government of Canada and Government of Ontario for the SWIFT broadband internet initiative.

“The SWIFT initiative is an important project for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound and I am very pleased to see that it has received this funding. I have been a long-time advocate of investment in rural broadband services and support any and all initiatives that seek to provide these important services to residents of Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound. I have supported this initiative from its inception and continue to do so. The SWIFT initiative is also supported by a number of local governments and will surely benefit Southwestern Ontario. With technology advancing every day it is vital that rural residents have access to services that are readily available in urban areas.”
