MPP Michael Mantha recognizes recipients of 2016-17 Ontario Arts Council grants
Those of you who follow my News from the Park column weekly or tune into the televised proceedings of the Ontario Legislature will know how frequently I raise the issue that we Northerners sometimes feel slighted or forgotten by the government and their policy makers.
It’s time to brush the dust from my shoes gathered at all of the festivals, pow wows events, celebrations and meetings that I attended over the summer and head back to the Legislature. After all the conversations and meetings I had with many constituents this summer, clearly there is a lot of work to be done back in Queen’s Park. My colleagues and I feel primed and pumped, ready to bring the concerns we gathered over the summer to the government.
