THUNDER BAY – POLITICS 2.0 – Heading into Election 2018, the provincial campaign is already heating up for June 7th’s election. The Thunder Bay-Superior North Liberals have nominated Michael Gravelle as their candidate. Gravelle has represented the riding since 1995 and is looking for another mandate to continue his work for the region.
Minister Gravelle stopped by the Newsroom and shares his insights into the riding, and into his goals going forward into the coming campaign.
Gravelle says many of the efforts that have needed attention in our region have been addressed, or are being addressed. He points to the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund as one of the key economic drivers in the region and the thousands of jobs which have been created.
