Nickel Belt Provincial Liberal Candidate Only One To Show Up and Face Incumbent at Sudbury’s Chamber of Commerce Election Debate Nickel Belt Provincial
Liberal Candidate Gilles Proulx was the only candidate to show up and debate incumbent France Gelinas at the Sudbury Chamber of Commerce event held May 12, 2022.
Both the Conservative and Green Party candidates were no shows.
Although Proulx and Gelinas shared many concerns about the direction the province, and Nickel Belt are heading, they had different approaches to how to solve them.
Proulx was concerned in particular about the uncertainty of Laurentian University, and how it effects youth in the riding.
“We know what happens when kids leave. … They don’t come back.” said Proulx.
Proulx also wants to see greater participation with First Nations communities when it comes to growing the north.
