Sonny Spina, Conservative Candidate for the Sault Ste. Marie riding for the upcoming October Federal Election issued a statement surrounding the visit of the Attorney General to the Sault on Sunday.
In Sault Ste Marie we value and believe that everyone has the right to come forward if they see something happening that is wrong.
Earlier this year, former Health and Treasury Minister Jane Philpott and former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould were fired from their positions for blowing the whistle and talking about inappropriate behaviour and pressure from Trudeau’s officials. In essence, they were fired for standing up and doing the right thing.
By Terry and the Liberal Party’s actions yesterday, it seems they don’t care. Terry flew Trudeau’s replacement Attorney General to Sault Ste. Marie for a fundraiser tonight. At the same time, it has been reported by the CBC that Trudeau has rehired Gerald Butts, the man who just 5 months ago resigned from the Trudeau Liberals in disgrace over his involvement in the SNC Lavalin Scandal.
This isn’t the first time Terry’s priorities have not been on our community. Earlier this summer it was reported that he pushed for and celebrated nearly one million dollars of FEDNOR funding for a business that does not have an office or even a single job here in Sault Ste. Marie. That money, is meant to help develop businesses in Northern Ontario. Sadly, it was approved and reportedly sent to Southern Ontario without evidence to suggest any of it would be actually staying here to help our community.
Enough is enough. It’s time to stop the scandals. It’s time for elected officials to start putting Sault Ste. Marie first, and I intend to do that with your support this October.
