Statement – 2017 Federal Budget

I am pleased that the Federal Government recognized the importance of FedNor and investments in communities and businesses in northern Ontario in the 2017 Federal Budget. Increasing FedNor’s budget is something that I and my fellow northern Mayor’s advocated hard for through NOLUM and we will continue to work together to ensure that northern Ontario receives the investments that will help grow our economy and create local jobs. I would like to thank the Northern Ontario Liberal Caucus, including MPs Marc Serré and Paul Lefebvre, for their support and the Government of Canada for making this a priority.
