Press Conference in North Bay with Former OPP Commander Mark Andrews

Published on March 11, 2020

On Tuesday, March 10 I had the pleasure to speak about winter road maintenance and safety in Northern Ontario alongside Mark Andrews, former Traffic and Marine Commander of the Northeast Region of the OPP and a strong advocate for road safety.

We both spoke about the need to improve our Northern highway winter maintenance system and the fact that improvements are at the government's disposal - including my bill to re-classify winter maintenance on Highways 11 and 17 as Class 1. 

As Mark said during the conference "I urge those who make the decisions to consider the long and hard costs" of these shortcomings.
