Sarnia Lambton MP Marilyn Gladu announces Oversized Load Corridor Funding

August 07, 2019


MP Marilyn Gladu is pleased to celebrate the funding announcement of the Sarnia-Lambton Oversized Load Corridor (the Project) submitted by The Corporation of the City of Sarnia under the National Trade Corridors Fund (NTCF) Continuous call for trade diversification projects. The project is now eligible for up to $6 million dollars in federal funding.  Marilyn joined with other local officials and industry representatives, as well as the Hon. Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport, at the official announcement earlier today at Sarnia Harbour. 

 

“I’m extremely pleased to announce our community has been successful in getting federal funding for this important project.  As the Federal Member of Parliament for Sarnia-Lambton, I have been strongly advocating for the Oversized Load Corridor project since 2015.  In fact, it was a signature campaign promise that I made to constituents when I first ran for office – promise made, promise kept. It’s important to note that we have been able to work cooperatively at all levels of government and business to see this proposal gain the federal funding required to fully proceed.  I also want to acknowledge the efforts of my fellow Working Group members for this proposal, which involved local officials and business leaders from industry.  We worked together to ensure this priority project was successful under the National Trade Corridors Fund, and I am excited for the future job opportunities that this project will create for our local economy.”

 - Marilyn Gladu, Member of Parliament (Sarnia Lambton)
