“I am so very honoured to be part of such an outstanding organization that for the past almost 60 years has held true to its mission of people we serve realizing the full participation, inclusion and citizenship in the life of our Prince Edward County community.”

Constituency assistant Adam Bramburger warmly congratulated CLPE on behalf of Bay of Quinte MPP Todd Smith.
