QUEEN’S PARK - PC Northern Development Critic Norm Miller and Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli will be holding stakeholder consultations next month across Northeastern Ontario regarding Dalton McGuinty’s decision to dismantle the Ontario Northland Transportation Commission.

Meetings will be held in North Bay, Timmins, Cochrane and Englehart during the week of June 18th.

“This government proceeded with a fire sale of Ontario Northland with no prior consultation of communities or stakeholders in the North,” said Fedeli.

“We want to visit the communities most affected by this decision to hear their thoughts, concerns, and determine their requirements going forward,” Fedeli said.

“It’s especially important to know what current customers of Ontario Northland want and need to ensure their businesses can succeed.”

Fedeli, who has met with Northern Development and Mines Minister Rick Bartolucci as well as top ONTC officials, also has a meeting scheduled with Infrastructure Ontario this month in Toronto to learn more about the process the government plans to use in dismantling the ONTC.

“Ontario Northland continues to be my number one priority and I will work to ensure as many jobs remain in North Bay as possible and service levels are maintained.”
