Liberal nominee for the Kenora Rainy-River District and Iskatewizaagegan First Nation band councillor, Karen Kejick, says that the region can’t afford ‘more of the same’ from the Progressive Conservatives.
“Simply put, Northwestern Ontario can't afford another Harris or Harper. We can't afford the kind of change Doug Ford would bring to Ontario. Greg Rickford has proven time and time again that he doesn't have what it takes to stand up for the people of Kenora - Rainy River.”
Kejick continued to say that Rickford, Ford and the Tories will will bring ‘devastating cuts’ to key programs and services like health-care, education and infrastructure.
She says that when Rickford was the federal MP under the Harper Conservatives, the PC’s gutted funding for economic development and infrastructure in Northern Ontario, cut funding to the Experimental Lakes Area, and refused to match Ontario’s $1 billion commitment to Ring of Fire infrastructure.
“I was born here and grew up on the shores of our beautiful lakes. As a community leader and activist I've proven that I am not afraid to stand up to government for what is right for Northwest Ontario. And as your elected representative I'll have your back. I'll be a strong voice for solutions that work for Northwest Ontario to create good jobs and build up strong, healthy, and safe communities.”
Former federal cabinet minister Greg Rickford is the nominee for the Progressive Conservatives. Kenora’s Glen Archer is representing the NDP. The provincial election is set for June 7.
