Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus says the federal government is ignoring the single most important issue for Northerners: job creation. This comment comes on the heels of a Liberal cabinet retreat in Sudbury over the weekend, which included a visit from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Angus says that retreat didn’t touch on issues like the Ring of Fire, broadband upgrades, and reversing healthcare cuts.

Angus says the retreat, and the lack of discussion on northern issues, is following a disturbing trend of Liberals ignoring northern priorities.
