Budget Overlooks The North

             Churchill Member of Parliament Niki Ashton says the federal budget did not recognize the needs of people in northern Manitoba including the need for infrastructure.  She says unfortunately this budget doesn’t deliver when it comes to infrastructure investment, something that would create jobs and contribute to the needs that we have in the north.  She adds she’s also particularly disappointed about the lack of investment in aboriginal communities noting Stephen Harper in recent months said a lot about working in partnership with First Nations and investment in important areas like education and yet this budget fails to do that which is a blow to our region in moving forward.

              Ashton says although it wasn’t in the budget minister Vic Toews is talking about a road linking Churchill to Nunavut and if it’s done in partnership with northern and aboriginal people it would be very positive for our region.
