FedNor’s role in developing businesses, jobs and infrastructure has been instrumental according to Conservative candidate Andre Robichaud.

Robichaud, drawing on his experience in economic development in Kapuskasing, says FedNor will continue its role in helping northern communities.

He is running against the NDP’s Carol Hughes and the Liberal’s Heather Wilson.

Robichaud says a number of major infrastructure projects have been made possible by FedNor and he plans to keep its role a major one.

The election is set for October 19th.
