Conservative candidate for Timmins-James Bay says splitting infrastructure funding three ways is the way to fix our roads. John Curley says the city, the province, and the federal government all have to take responsibility to fix aging infrastructure in the north.
He says it’s a lot easier to have a shared program between all three levels of government to get the infrastructure back in place. He says the fixes along Algonquin are huge, but it’s a band-aid solution. He says it needs a long-term fix, which will be big dollars. A lot of communities in the north need extra money, and Curley says the one-third funding is the best option for everyone.
Running against Curley in the Timmins-James Bay riding is NDP Charlie Angus, Green Party candidate Max Kennedy, and Liberal Todd Lever.
