“As families in Niagara face one of the highest unemployment rates in the province, the Ontario Liberals have done nothing to create jobs in the region.  Instead of getting job creation from this government, the Wynne Liberals are mired in yet another scandal.  They are making matters worse with their sell-off of Hydro One, putting more burden on families and businesses, hampering job creation,” said Gates

“And they still don’t have a timeline or funding plan for expanding GO Train service to Niagara Falls.”

Statistics Canada numbers released this April 8th, 2016 show that the St. Catharines-Niagara region lost 3,000 jobs since last month, putting the unemployment rate at 8.3 per cent in March. That is the second highest unemployment rate in the province, and the fifth highest in Canada.
