News Release

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

Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli is pleased with several brief but productive conversations he’s had this week with the new Northern Development and Natural Resources Ministers.


Fedeli addressed the future of Ontario Northland in impromptu conversations with MNDM Minister Michael Gravelle on Tuesday and Wednesday.


“I’ve provided the Minister with a copy of my letter to the Auditor General which shows there are no savings to be had in the Liberals’ fire sale of Ontario Northland,” said Fedeli.


Fedeli has also had a phone conversation and two face-to-face chats at the Legislature with MNR Minister David Orazietti regarding the recent restrictions placed on the Lake Nipissing walleye fishery.


“Our discussion on the fishery focused on options and solutions available and we’ll continue to talk about it,” said Fedeli.


“Let me be perfectly clear – they both understand I disagree with the government’s overall direction, but that won’t stop me from continuing to reach out across the aisle to ensure the priorities of Nipissing are on the government’s radar,” Fedeli said.


“It’s important the lines of communication remain open to resolve these important local issues, and others, such as infrastructure needs including renovations at Memorial Gardens and the government dock in Callander.”


Fedeli has also spoken by phone with Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli, and mentioned to Aboriginal Affairs Minister David Zimmer he hopes to soon discuss issues surrounding the Algonquin Land Claim in more detail.

Yesterday there was an article from
Mr.Pacey from the local Liberal establishment stating amongst other
Liberal rhetoric that Fedeli and Hudak
were going to force an election because
they would not allow the throne speech
or a budget pass to force an election.
As well that Fedeli had his own agenda
which was to become Party Leader.
I as well as others expressed our views
on the garbage article only to find that
the article and the comments were pulled
from the site following my comments.
Am I and others now to believe that only
those remarks extolling the "Virtues ???"
of the Liberal Party Of Ont. will be the
only ones acceptable to the Mgt. of this site.

Whaaz up:
Whaazup with you?
Nothing was pulled from the website.....there is only so much room on the first page for news stories.....click "more news" and you will see that the story is still there and so are yours and others comments.
You have been commenting long enough on this site to know this........or are you just trying to stir up more divisiveness and controversy....?

Thanks
But if you follow the oldest out and the newest in scenario your comments might hold water. I stand by my statements
and continue to stir the pot when I feel
it must be stirred. I am not the only
cook on this site

So the title makes it sound like VF is holding meetings with northern minsters, but no he's just yaking with co workers at Queens Park. Not news and not really work is it?

Yea
And I see by Question Period today
that the Fiberals just Happened to
find a few more bits of the papers
that had been ordered by the Speaker
to produce in total some months ago.
This will be the third time these bozos
swore that they had turned over all of
the evidence pertaining to the move of the
Power Plants.On A question to the NEW??
Leader she let it slip that there "May"
be other evidence in the Premiers Office.
Aren't you Liberals just a little embarrassed by the Pack of lies from
these Ministers of our Govt.
Hang your heads in Shame !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
