THUNDER BAY – NDP leader Andrea Horwath is stopping at the Bombardier manufacturing facility in Thunder Bay today. That stop has drawn the ire of Thunder Bay Superior North MPP Michael Gravelle. “Andrea Horwath has a lot of nerve visiting Bombardier in Thunder Bay given her record of voting in Toronto against the investments that helped create the jobs in the first place”, stated Gravelle.
“If Andrea Horwath had her way, there would be no new subway cars, no new GO trains, and no good-paying jobs at Bombardier,” continued Gravelle. “The NDP talks the talk in northern Ontario, but does the exact opposite in Toronto.”
Gravelles says, “In 2006, Horwath stood in the house and voted against investing $838 million in transit, including Toronto’s Spadina subway extension. Then in 2008, she stood and voted against a $382 million investment including funding to replace and renew GO transit equipment”.
“Andrea Horwath had the chance to support Thunder Bay families, instead she played politics with Tim Hudak’s PCs and voted against us,” charged Gravelle.
