OTTAWA – Northern Ontario municipalities are going to be hard-pressed to find relief for aging infrastructure and a fragile jobs market in the budget, according to Northern Ontario NDP MPs.
“Mr. Speaker, last week’s budget all but ignores Northern Ontario. The facts are in the Finance’s department’s own numbers. While the Southern Ontario development agency got some new funding, Northern Ontario once again got snubbed by these Conservatives,” said Glenn Thibeault (Sudbury).
