As some of you may know now Service Ontario in Kemptville will be closing in Febuary. This is an outrage and will affect everyone in our community.
The employees have brought our town their experience and expertise in not only MTO, but also in Health Cards and Hunting needs. Not to mention they do six other parts of government.
We are to now go to Brockville or Down town Ottawa.
I checked today the wait time in the Ottawa office, three hour wait!!!
You don't think the closing of the Kemptville Service Ontario will effect you? Think again!!
What about our local car dealerships who will now have to travel the distance to do their business. What about our local car garages that has a clientele with people from the city because they bring their vehicle here so they don't have to deal with Service Ontario in Ottawa.
What about our local marina's and trailer dealers and the Kemptville Truck Centre???
This effects a lot of our local businesses, which will harm our community!
Not to mention the future business ventures that thought Kemptville would be a good town to invest. There was talk of a Ford dealership coming to Kemptville, but with no service ontario they may second guess their decision.
Think of our seniors that will now have to commute and wait ridiculous amounts of time to renew their licenses, I doubt that they all have the means to travel that far!
