Timmins-James Bay MPP, Gilles Bisson says there’s a long list of issues to address in the coming year, not just for his riding but for the entire north. Bisson says issues with connecting link funding should be addressed along with clearly defining what the province is actually responsible for.

The connecting link in Kapuskasing was only possible thanks to FedNor funding, even though it’s a provincial highway.

In Timmins, the city has been fighting for connecting link funding all year from the province. Bisson says issues regarding healthcare requires serious attention in terms of resources and treatment needs.
