Member of Parliament Niki Ashton visited several communities including Flin Flon over the last couple of weeks.  She says one of the major issues facing these communities is unemployment and inequality stating our region has been ignored.


Ashton reports when Parliament resumed sitting she rose in Question Period to call out the decades of policies that are failing our region including privatization, job killing trade deals and foreign takeovers and a tax system that is rigged against working people and killing jobs.


In terms of the port of Churchill she has called for it to be re-nationalized and developed in partnership with First Nations and northern communities. She adds we can take action to protect and enhance resource based jobs including promoting value added jobs, we can make the tax system fairer and ensure the wealthy pay their fair share, we can ensure that more of the wealth generated in our region benefits northern and Indigenous people and this starts with them having a say over development in their communities.
