Ashton Continues To Bring Northern Concerns To Parliament

Local MP Niki Ashton says that the issues faced by the people of Northern Manitoba continue to be her top concern.

 

She said that while the Prime Minister was lecturing in Switzerland about inequality, trade deals, privatization and foreign takeovers are seeing jobs being taken away, the Port of Churchill shut down, and up to 90 percent unemployment in Indigenous communities.

 

Ashton added that she addressed the ongoing uncertainty of the region, specifically the loss of jobs, on the first day that Parliament was in session in 2018.

 

She concluded by saying that she will continue to be a voice for the issues in our region.
