Rickford Announces Funding For Fort Hope Police Station

The federal government is coming on board with funding to construct a new police station in the remote northern community of Fort Hope.

Kenora MP Greg Rickford made the announcement yesterday.

Rickford says the government has committed 1.82-million dollars for the project, while the province is on board with 1.68-million.

He notes since 2009, the Conservative Government has invested in new police stations for 8 First Nations communities in the Kenora riding alone.
