Tony Martin NDP Sault Ste. Marie, ON

moved for leave to introduce Bill C-451, An Act to establish the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Region of Northern Ontario.

Mr. Speaker, today I introduce a bill that would bump up the status of FedNor to a full-fledged economic development agency similar to the agencies that exist in other parts of the country where there are economic challenges. It would also redirect the mandate to focus solely on the nine ridings that make up northern Ontario. It would give FedNor a focused and expanded mandate with sound community, economic and development principles.
