Action is Needed on Northern Issues.

Yesterday Churchill Keewatinook Aski candidate Niki Ashton along with other federal NDP candidates across the country announced the party’s Indigenous People and northern platform.



Ashton spoke of reconciliation and the failure of the Trudeau government to bring about effective change explaining reconciliation is meaningless unless we are talking about ending the housing crisis on First Nations and in northern communities, unless we’re talking about proper funding for health care that is badly needed across our north, unless we’re talking about fully supporting education not just K to 12 but also post secondary for people coming from First Nations, Metis and northern communities.


Ashton said the NDP are committed to improving infrastructure, especially in northern communities where there are no airports and those that can no longer rely on winter roads due to climate change. Other candidates in the riding are Liberal Judy Klassen, Conservative Cyara Bird, Peoples Party Ken Klyne and Green Party Ralph McLean.
