March 23, 2013 - The provincial Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs will be traveling to Thunder Bay on April 3rd.
The committee has been traveling across the province listening to the budget submissions of Ontarians and recently announced it would add a stop in Thunder Bay.
Through the subcommittee, all three parties agreed on the locations for consultations. Liberal members put forward a request to continue discussion on locations and to conduct a pre-budget consultation in northwest Ontario.
Options for video or tele-conference are currently being considered so that the committee can connect with as many communities across northwest Ontario as possible.
Information on a location and times for the hearings will be confirmed early next week. All Ontarians are encouraged to submit proposals and comments written or verbal.
â€œI am very pleased to hear the Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs will be coming to Thunder Bay. Certainly, this is something that I have advocated for since day one and was pleased my colleagues were able to raise this point of order to open up discussions on locations. I strongly encourage community groups and organizations to get involved in the process and make a submission to the committee." -- Michael Gravelle, MPP Thunder Bay - Superior North
â€œThunder Bay has been the location for pre-budget consultations on several occasions. I am pleased that we will once again have the opportunity to host SCFEA here in our community.â€ -- Bill Mauro MPP Thunder Bay â€“ Atikokan
