QUEEN’S PARK – Today’s Throne Speech was a missed opportunity for the McGuinty-Wynne Liberals to change direction and get Ontario off the wrong track, said Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli.

No one should be more disappointed with the speech than Northern Ontarians, Fedeli added.

“Out of 17 pages, Northern Ontario received half of one sentence,” Fedeli said.

“There was no mention of Ontario Northland or the New Deal, and no definitive plan to develop the Ring of Fire,” said Fedeli.

“The lack of attention paid to the North is very alarming.”

Fedeli also expressed dismay at the lack of a plan to reduce spending and create jobs to get Ontarians working again.

“Regrettably for Ontario, Premier Wynne appears to have chosen to entrench the McGuinty agenda that led to the biggest jobs and debt crisis of our lifetime,” said Fedeli.

“The only way forward is to move quickly, confidently and boldly in the direction you know is right. The Ontario PC Party is the only party with a comprehensive plan to end overspending and grow our economy.”
