New Democrats from across northern Ontario and beyond will gather in Timmins for the annual Northern Council May 25th to 27th at Timmins Inns and Suites. Special guests will include provincial leader Andrea Horwath and federal opposition leader Tom Mulcair.
Timmins-James Bay Riding Association President Louis Clausi says the weekend will be very special. “We are honoured to have both Andrea and Thomas in Timmins for the convention. Furthermore, Members of Parliament and Members of Provincial Parliament will join delegates in a weekend of discussion and debate.”
Clausi expects delegates from Sudbury, North Bay, Parry Sound, Sault Ste Marie, Temiskaming Shores, Thunder Bay and Timmins.
“We think our theme ‘Jobs in the North’ is timely indeed.”
MP Charlie Angus is looking forward to talking with delegates. “Last year was a very good year for New Democrats in the north. And with an increase to the size of the northern federal and provincial caucus, we should have some very productive discussion.”
Timmins last hosted Northern Council in 2007.
