Niki Ashton says that the Federal Government is increasingly out of touch.


Ashton said that while the people of Churchill are facing skyrocketing food prices and people in the north struggle to put food on the table, the Prime Minister took a celebrity chef with him on his recent trip to India.


She added that the government should be focusing on the issues that northerners face, like healthcare, education, poverty and unemployment and that "selfies and photo ops simply don’t cut it."


Our MP said that out of touch is the way to describe the federal government following the disconnect between the Prime Ministers recent trip to India and what is going on here in Canada.
