The Government Should Be Taking Action on Jobs in the North.

During her visit to Flin Flon last week Churchill Keewatinook Aski Member of Parliament Niki Ashton expressed concerns about jobs in the north.  She noted the lack of action by the federal government on job losses in Thompson and potential job losses at Hudbay in Flin Flon in 2021 and so jobs are front and center and it’s very important to hold Prime Minister Trudeau accountable.  She says he talks about the middle class, he talks a lot about good jobs but where is he for Flin Flon, where is he for Northern Manitoba and she can tell us the federal government isn’t at the table whether it’s on issues of diversification, whether it’s on saving good jobs in our north they’re not there the way we need them to be.


Other issues she noted in the north include the environment, education and on the provincial level the closing of birthing services in Flin Flon with praise for the We Want Birth Committee and people from the area who have called on the provincial government saying we’re not going to stand for it.
