MPPs, MP in Barrie to consult with residents on reopening economy, coronavirus concerns

Barrie–Innisfil’s MPP and Barrie–Springwater–Oro-Medonte’s MPP and MP will hold separate consultations with residents regarding reopening the economy and concerns related to the novel coronavirus.

A “tele-town hall” will be held for Barrie–Springwater–Oro-Medonte constituents on Thursday at 8 p.m. Residents across the riding will receive a phone call at that time and will be invited to stay on the line to automatically participate.

“The federal government is working quickly to support all Canadians,” Doug Shipley, Barrie–Springwater–Oro-Medonte MP, said in a statement.

“This tele-town hall will be an opportunity to gather feedback, provide updates and answer constituents’ questions. It will also be another physically-distanced way to connect with residents.”
