Northern Ontario is the next rontier. It is the expanding edge o Ontario’s economy, an area whose richorest and mineral resources can uel a reviving North American economy. Its colleges and universities provideleading research and technology training. Its aboriginal peoples are the cornerstone o Ontario’s history and acritical part o its economic and cultural uture. The north is a place where people know how to work hard andmake their own way.And yet, northern Ontario is alling ar short o its potential today. The Ring o Fire is the greatest miningdiscovery o a lietime, but the project has gone nowhere. Our once-burgeoning orest industry has shrunk andmills have closed. The entrepreneurial spirit that built the north has been crushed under the weight ogovernment regulations and environmental rules that seem designed to stop growth and keep industry away.There is a better way, and it starts with a government approach that understands and respects the north.We need a Premier who will take up the cause o the north and speak or it in the rest o the province, acrossthe country and around the world.Northern Ontario is a unique part o our province, with greater distances, smaller communities, a harsherclimate and a rugged land. Its people have a strong streak o independence, sel-reliance andpersonal responsibility.These Ontarians share a dierent kind o connection with the land, but increasingly their ate is being thrustupon them by a government that wants to impose a antasy view o northern lie. Politicians, bureaucrats andspecial-interest groups rom the south have tried to turn this dynamic, natural area into a museum without jobs,hope or a uture or the people who live there.My plan is or Ontario to once again be the engine o Canada’s economic growth. Northern Ontario, rich innatural resources and high-tech hubs in cities like North Bay, Sudbury and Thunder Bay, will provide the uel orthat growth. We need a Premier who will show the way, but also one who will listen, and act on whatNortherners want.As a ormer Minister o Northern Development and Mines, as well as Minister o Tourism, I love the north andhad a unique opportunity to travel there extensively, talking to amilies and business owners. I experienced itsvastness rsthand and have a vision or what it can and will be. I want to be the Premier who works withNortherners as they roll up their sleeves, build their communities, set their own destiny and prosper again.Tim HudakLeader o the Oicial Opposition
