On the campaign trail, Liberal Karen Kejick says she can do a better job of building the regional economy.
"We need an MPP who is willing and capable of reaching out to citizens, to First Nations, to Metis governments and saying, 'You are equal partners in this,' " she said.
Kejick's facing off against former MP Greg Rickford. He says a Tory government at Queen's Park will share more benefits from the resource sector.
"Provincial revenues from aggregate licences, stumpage fees and mining taxes will stay in their host municipalities and First Nations. Folks, isn't that refreshing to hear," he said.
NDP nominee Glen Archer says his party would help the resource sector.
"Our provincial forestry strategy is to protect the long-term sustainability of our forests. We're going to spend a billion dollars to get the Ring of Fire going now," he said.
Archer adds processing for the $60 billion dollar Ring of Fire should be in Ontario, not Michigan.
Green Party nominee Ember McKillop says they have ideas for improving hydro services.
"We want smart regulations that help level the playing field and allow local businesses to compete, offer discounted surplus electricity to businesses first, before exporting it out of province at a loss," she said.
Election day is set for June 7.
