A candidate’s forum was sponsored last night by the Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce and the City of Flin Fon.


In opening statements Liberal candidate Leslie Beck said she is looking into the last report on an all weather road from Lynn Lake to Flin Flon, the mining community fund, the need for a northern strategy and settling land claims with First Nations.


  PC Candidate Angela Enright said people in northern areas have been ignored by the current government and its time that changed.  She says the PC’s have a northern plan and the government should not leave future generations in debt.  She added they would let communities decide where to spend on infrastructure.


Independent candidate Clarence Pettersen spoke on his term as MLA and the 180 million dollars being spent in the riding and he will work to see that continue through partnerships including with Hudbay and unions on the future of Flin Flon.


  NDP candidate Tom Lindsey said the election is about making a choice on moving forward with the NDP or facing cuts by the PCs.  He said progress in being made on roads, exploration, jobs and they are committed to infrastructure.


   In response to questions candidates discussed several issues including a road to Pukatawagan through Flin Flon, the mining community reserve fund, provincial bus service, a base tax for municipalities, education and school taxes, creating a secondary industry in Flin Flon and clarifying exploration regulations.
