News Release

**********************

Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli issued the following statement on Friday’s final run of Ontario Northland’s Northlander passenger train:

"Today is indeed a sad day in the history of the relationship between the Government of Ontario and Northerners.

The people of Northern Ontario deserved to be consulted before learning of the ham-fisted decision to dismantle the Ontario Northland Transportation Commission through a fire sale.

"We, as Northerners, deserve better."

Oh, please, the Conservatives vowed to sell it long ago.

The past is over and it doesn't matter who started the whole thing.

The fact is that we are being cast aside as a bunch of hillbillies who have to settle for anything that will benefit the south. Drop services here so there is money to pad up services in the south.

The liberals are out in the next election and have lost my vote. Mike Harris and his slash and burn tactics lost my respect. The NDP under Bob Rae did nothing.

What the hel* is the choice now???

Ed Diebel and the Heritage Party should be revived and rise up from the ashes. Get candidates across the north EXCEPT SUDBURY and join together. Sudbury is out of the group.

Oh please, the liberals DID sell it !!!(and they made that decision when moe was in office!!)

Vowing to do it and actually doing it are 2 different things but the left wing bleeding hearts cant seem to come to grips that at the Federal level the liberals are an after thought and provincially there on their way out and at an all time low in popularity!!

Deal with it.....

Not long ago the Federal conservatives were an after thought, all but completely wipped out, they had what? Two seats?. Things go around. At the Federal level the PC's have put us in the deepest deficit in history. That too will pass and maybe they will actually pay it down. They have done it with the same finance minister that bankrupted Ontario, and that was in good economic times. Bleeding left wing hearts? What a stupid, nasty, cowardly, rightard statement. And from someone for whom the word "hate" is too strong a term. Haha! But of course your anonomous. You deal with it. Pat Morris

For someone who can't copy or spell properly that was pretty good Pat....your a real big man(queue the chest pounding!!)

U have no clue what hate is if u think the above comment was full of hate....NO CLUE!!!!

Funny, we had a GLOBAL meltdown in 08/09 and Canada came out of that better than most and u blame the PC's for the debt....LOL...apparently the country thought otherwise and gave them a majority government...thanx for the afternoon chuckle....

Cue the music.....
We will We will Rock you.

Cue Wm. Shatner with Canada flag behind him.....
WE WEAR FUR LINED BOOTS AND LAUGH AT THE COLD

Cue the loud noise in the bar.....

Cue a day in parliament (either one)....

@Dealer
Harris and Flaherty began the demise of the ONTC with the selling of Norontair. Eves and Flaherty were going to sell of the rest starting with Ontera. That is one of a myriad of reasons why the Liberals won their first mandate with McGuinty as Premier.

Fedeli is trying to have it both ways, saying this is sad for Northerners, but he was on the side of privitizing it (ONTC) himself. He's having a hard time these days with so many splinters up his.....from sitting on the fence. In fact it is all about him, not about Northerners at all. He wants 'Whodat's' job.

Selling off the ONTC is not the answer, but the Liberals are still a much safer bet than the Harrisites or the Dippers.

(Harper, by the way, is history after the next election if not before. The writing is on the wall and he put it there himself.)
