Recolonized: A Letter from Trevor Holliday, NOP Leader

Northern Ontario is again being slashed, cut and treated even more like a colony!

Doug Ford has started the bulldozer in Toronto headed for Northern Ontario and is leaving a path of destruction in its wake. It started with plans to download the TTC onto the province which will cost Northerners to fund it.

Followed by yet another broken promise of no public sector job cuts. With the cuts to health care funding not only service was cut but jobs as well.

A freeze to public sector workers which further eliminates the chance to improve service, support and Employment in Northern Ontario.

$100 million funding cut for cuts to repairs for schools.

Then sadly Ford takes aim at the Francophone community, which Northern Ontario holds close as it is part of what makes Northern Ontario so amazing. They attend French school all the way through and then at university they are forced to attend English courses. This is discrimination and the middle finger to Northern Ontario’s Francophone community.

With less than six months as premier, Doug Ford is on track to surpass the destruction that Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals had caused. With over three years left in power what will be left of Northern Ontario and which community or part of beautiful Northern Ontario will Ford run down next.
