KENORA – “Our government’s top priority is the economy, which is why we are continuing to implement Canada’s Economic Action Plan,” says Greg Rickford the MP for Kenora. “The construction of the Lake of the Woods Discovery Centre has created local jobs and economic growth, and will improve the lives of residents in the area so that Canadian families continue to prosper for years to come.”
“Jobs and economic growth continue to be created by Canada’s Economic Action Plan,” announced Rickford in Kenora on Wednesday to tour the construction site and celebrate the significant progress made on the Lake of the Woods Discovery Centre project.
The Harper Government is demonstrating the job creation and benefits of Canada’s Economic Action Plan. MP Rickford’s visit to the Lake of the Woods Discovery Centre is just one of over 80 events happening across the country on Wednesday. “The Lake of the Woods Discovery Centre will provide a unique interactive experience for discovering the Lake of the Woods Region. It will be a focal point of the city with its beautiful location on the shores of Lake of the Woods and its unique architectural design and high-tech interior,” added Rickford.
“The Harper government is committed to stimulating the economy through the creation of jobs. Canada’s Economic Action Plan continues to create jobs and economic growth with more than 26,000 job-creating projects underway or completed from coast to coast to coast,” continued Rickford. “The results are clear: Since July 2009 Canada’s economy has created over 460,000 new jobs and the economy has grown for five straight quarters”.
“The economic recovery is still fragile,” commented Rickford. “That is why we must stay on track and continue to focus on the economy.”
