Our Member of Parliament says Projects in the North are More Important Than a Pipeline.


MP Niki Ashton spoke to the Thompson Chamber of Commerce this week. She said instead of investing money in a 65 year old pipeline the federal government should face up to the challenges we are facing in the north. She noted having a federal partner at the table when it comes to dealing with what Thompson is dealing with, having the federal government take over the Port of Churchill, the railway and work with local people to bring it back into operation, having the federal government invest in housing and the national housing crisis that exists on so many First Nations in our region that we know have a very negative impact on the lives of many First Nations people in our north and the need to have sustained federal funding when it comes to ensuring that post secondary education is available to people in our north.


Ashton added these are tough times in the north and we deserve governments on our side.
