Our two federal MPs plan to take back the region’s concerns to Parliament Hill.
Thunder Bay-Rainy River MP Don Rusnak and Thunder Bay-Superior North MP Patty Hajdu held pre-budget consultation sessions Monday afternoon at the CLE.
Rusnak tells us there are common themes in our region ahead of the 2019 budget.
“Infrastructures always big on the municipalities mind and programs to help with crime reduction to help make communities safer.”
Hajdu feels the pre-budget consultation sessions are helpful to inform politicians of the region’s priorities.
“It gives us the opportunity to hear what we’ve been able to achieve over the last three budgets, what people are still hoping and waiting for or what they want us to address next.”
Regional stakeholders and organizations were invited to attend the session and share what they would like to see in the upcoming budget.
