Like every member of our community, I’ve anxiously followed news about Essar over the past year and watched as friends and relatives had to plan their futures, not knowing if they would still have a job.
In uncertain times, it’s critical that Sault Ste. Marie has a strong voice at the government table. Someone who will fight for every bit of support that Essar needs to remain sustainable and competitive, and someone who will fight to protect the thousands of good paying jobs right here in our community.
Other candidates in this by-election will tell you that they’ll push the government for these investments, but without a seat at the table, they’ll never be as effective as a government MPP.
I don’t want to go down to Queen’s Park to make friends or play politics. I want to fight for the Sault and for you and I believe having a representative that’s part of a majority government, is the best way to do that.
