NOP is the Proven Champion of the North
The Northern Ontario Party, once again proves how effective they have become when battling for the North. Over the last month,we have Patrick Brown making comments about our party and states even he , himself understands why the Northern Ontario Party has formed after years of neglect from Queens Park. Mr. Brown, states not only does he understand the Northern need for our party, he appears to be taking our platform ideas. These include similar strategies on:
- No more (Northern) school closures
- Reinstate passenger rail service across Northern Ontario.
- Need for a revamping of the Current MNRF
- Getting rid of the Carbon Tax
Trevor Holliday states that The Northern Ontario Party is becoming a real threat in the next election. Since the formation of the Northern Ontario Party,the big three political parties are finally listening to Northern concerns, We all know, this hasn’t happened in a long time. We believe the NDP, the Conservatives, and the Liberals are worried that the NOP will win multiple seats in the next election and will decide who will form the next government. It is funny to see how far they are willing to bend backwards to show concern for the North since the NOP has been holding these politicians to task !!!
One just needs to look at the announcement this past week by Kathleen’s government with her promise to expand public transportation throughout the North. This is in addition to the promise by the Conservatives to resume the Northlander rail service if they get elected.
Trevor states we have had a lot of naysayers in the past coming to us , stating what could our party do when the NOP is only focused on 13 ridings. Now, these naysayers are now believers and have long since become party members, as even they recognize we are forcing these GTA focused parties to take notice of Northern Ontario’s needs.
Over the last year, we have Northerners from all walks of life come forward and asked to represent the NOP in the next election. Currently, we are in the midst of our vetting process to ensure the very best candidates represent our party . In the meantime, we are proud to announce that the following positions have been filled in the different Riding Associations throughout the North.
- Kiiwetinoong: Interim president, Phil Klyne
- Nickel Belt: Interim president, Matthew Del Papa CFO, James Schmidt
- Sault Ste. Marie: Interim president, Sandy Holmberg
- Parry Sound: Interim president, Ray Belec
Stay tuned for additional announcements in the next few weeks as we continue to have roles filled within our Riding Associations.
