Wynne/Horwath Duke It Out in Northern Debate

Energy, the Ring of Fire, police costs and social services.

Those were just some of the issues covered in the Northern Leaders Debate today in Thunder Bay.

Kenora mayor Dave Canfield asked about improving supports for social services and NDP Leader Andrea Horwath agreed that more needs to be done for people on social assistance in this region.

For her part, premier Kathleen Wynne pledged to maintain ministries that are important to northern Ontario such as Aboriginal Affairs, Natural Resources and Northern Development and Mines.

Conservative leader Tim Hudak was a no-show, campaigning in southern Ontario instead.
