news-Andrea Horwath

Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath says the provincial government shouldn’t shy away from seriously considering a possible financial role when it comes to supporting Essar Steel Algoma in restructuring its debt and exiting creditor protection.
Horwath who was in the Sault on Friday to support byelction candidate Joe Krmpotich says she doesn’t see it as corporate welfare and if the government does provide financial support, there needs to be some concrete conditions around it…


A few weeks ago when Premier Wynne was in the Sault, she wouldn’t say whether the province had been asked to provide financial support—–she would only say they are monitoring the proceedings closely and the process needs to play out.
