THUNDER BAY – New Democrat Member of Parliament John Rafferty (Thunder Bay – Rainy River) issued the following statement today in response to the decision made by Fort William Chief Georjann Morriseau to withdraw her candidacy for the federal constituency of Thunder Bay – Rainy River in the 2015 general election.

 “Georjann has proven to be a very effective Chief for the Fort William First Nation and a strong voice in our community and region. I welcome the opportunity to continue working with her to improve the well-being of our constituents. 

In particular we must continue our work to rebuild the James St. bridge which is a vital link between the people, economies, and cultures of Thunder Bay and the Fort William First Nation. For my part, I will continue to lay the groundwork for our federal government to take a more active role in this process should negotiations fail between our communities and CN Rail.

I wish Georjann all the best with her ongoing work as Chief of the Fort William First Nation.”
