Selwyn CAO Janice Lavalley told the Herald The Township of Selwyn, along with its partners the Curve Lake First Nation, Community Care and the City of Peterborough, were very excited when funding was announced in May of this year to support the development of a rural transportation service. The application included transition funding to provide for the continuation of the Curve Lake First Nation Safe Travels Program until the new service was in place. Unfortunately, we have not yet received the required agreement from the Province that would allow for the funding to flow and planning for implementation of the service to begin. At this point we are unsure when, or if, the funding will come to fruition.

MPP Dave Smith was contacted for comment, but no reply was received prior to press time.
