North Glen­garry will re­ceive $326,504 through the fed­eral Gas Tax Fund.

Glen­garry-Prescott-Rus­sell MP Fran­cis Drouin was in Em­brun on Mon­day to an­nounce that mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties in his rid­ing would re­ceive a grand to­tal of $5,765,436. He says the funds can be used for in­fra­struc­ture like lo­cal roads, sports and recre­ation fa­cil­i­ties and tourism pro­grams.

“The projects gen­er­ate eco­nomic growth and cre­ate jobs to en­sure that On­tario re­mains among the best places in the world to live,” he said by way of an Aug. 13 press re­lease. “Whether the fed­eral Gas Tax Fund is in­vested to keep our roads safe and smooth, to sup­port our public tran­sit sys­tem or to im­prove res­i­dents’ ac­cess to clean drink­ing wa­ter, it has made a dif­fer­ence in our com­mu­nity.”
