Residents are invited to a public BBQ being hosted by Sault MPP David Orazietti and the Premier of Ontario Kathleen Wynne.
Wynne is expected to arrive Monday for the BBQ at Bellevue Park from 5 to 8pm. The stop is part of the Premier’s week-long Northern Ontario tour.
Premier Kathleen Wynne will visit schools, hospitals, businesses, Indigenous communities and other groups across Northern Ontario from August 6 to 12 to listen to local ideas and highlight how the government is supporting economic growth and job creation in the North.
During the week, the Premier will announce a series of investments relating to infrastructure, health care and other measures to enhance public services and help accelerate economic growth in existing and emerging sectors. She will also meet with people from organizations across the North to discuss how the government can help ensure that people in every corner of Ontario prosper and have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
The Premier will visit more than a dozen communities, including Sudbury, Espanola, Little Current, Elliot Lake, Blind River, Sault Ste. Marie, Batchawana Bay, Wawa, Fort Frances, Emo, Dryden, Kenora, Sioux Lookout, Moosonee, Moose Factory, North Bay, New Liskeard and Kirkland Lake.
Investing to support Northern Ontario is part of the government’s economic plan to build Ontario up and deliver on its number-one priority to grow the economy and create jobs. The four-part plan includes helping more people get and create the jobs of the future by expanding access to high-quality college and university education. The plan is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, roads, bridges and transit in Ontario’s history and is investing in a low-carbon economy driven by innovative, high-growth, export-oriented businesses. The plan is also helping working Ontarians achieve a more secure retirement.
