In The Riding: February 10th
More critical meetings with cabinet ministers in Northwestern Ontario.
Associate Minister Charmaine Williams (Women’s Social and Economic Opportunity) joined me for a roundtable discussion with the Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce.
Associate Minister met Carolyn Karle, who as you may know lost her daughter Dayna to an accidental drug overdose at the age of 31.
Carolyn is involved with Team DEK, which is dedicated to improving addiction treatment services in the Thunder Bay District.
I look forward to continuing the relationship with Team DEK as we strive to find a collaborative approach to address the addictions problems.
I don’t see Thunder Bay moving forward economically or socially until this crisis is adequately addressed.
I met with community leaders and residents to discuss the best methods to meet our housing needs in Northern Ontario.
Associate Minister Williams was part of the trip as was Minister Steve Clark (Municipal Affairs, Housing) and Minister Greg Rickford (Northern Development, Indigenous Affairs).
Supports For Survivors of Violence
Our government is investing up to $1.65 million to help women who have experienced violence and survivors of human trafficking access the support they need.
The Sexual Abuse Centre Thunder Bay will receive $10,000 and Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA) is in line to receive $180,000.
