The Thompson Local News


A public meeting is taking place to discuss the provincial government's recent budget, specifically cuts to funding and how that will impact Thompson and the north.

 

The meeting is being held by unions and citizens concerned with the recently released budget, and is sponsored by the Thompson Labour Council.

 

Thompson resident Blair Hudson, one of the meeting organizers, said "Many people are concerned about cuts to health, including the cancellation of the new Northern Consultation Clinic and cuts to the Northern Health Region, the government has cut funding for education causing the elimination of jobs at the Mystery Lake School Division, increased class sizes from kindergarten to grade three. The UCN trades centre is now up in the air...no action from the government on the closure of the smelter and refinery, elimination of hundreds of Hydro jobs, threats of huge increases to your Hydro bill, cuts to the northern highways budget, the list seems to go on! We felt it was time to send a message to the provincial government that these cuts are unacceptable."

 

The meeting is taking place this evening at the SteelCentre, starting at 7:00.

Everyone is welcome to attend.
