FONOM is pleased with Premier Kathleen Wynne’s new appointment of cabinet ministers.

All four northern Liberal MPPs will be taking on ministerial duties, representing the region in Queen’s Park.

Michael Gravelle will remain at the head of Northern Development, Bill Mauro is moving to Municipal Affairs, David Orazietti will be taking over as Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services and Glenn Thibeault will assume the role of Minister of Energy.

President of FONOM Alan Spacek says in particular having Bill Mauro in Municipal Affairs will be of great benefit to many of the communities in northern Ontario.
