THUNDER BAY – Yesterday, Thunder Bay Superior North received some great news from the Conservative Government. The news was of course that the Thunder Bay Regional Institute will benefit from a $4 million contribution towards its Cyclotron from this year’s budget. This is great news for our community and means real jobs for years to come.
I’m really happy to hear that this will likely be in the budget. Both as a mayor and as the conservative Candidate I have been working with the proponents on this file and recognize the economic benefit it will bring both to Thunder Bay and the region as a whole. This is just another step in helping our region be recognized as a centre of excellence in research and development.
The NDP Member of Parliament Bruce Hyer has let us down over the last two years by consistently voting against every piece of legislation that has contained money for investment, economic stimulus and for needed social programs for our region. He listened to his Toronto based leader instead of his own constituents right here in Thunder Bay Superior North.
We need someone who supports bettering our region and not someone who is going to be voting against what is good for this riding.
Now the question is will he do it again – will he continue to play his cheap political games and force an unnecessary election or will he support this Conservative Government and allow the Cyclotron project to proceed?
I call on Bruce Hyer to support the budget and stop playing games with jobs in our community.
