Roads in northern Ontario need more attention from the provincial government. That’s according to John Vanthof, who’s the MPP for Temiskaming-Cochrane.
Vanthof says a recent report from the Auditor General revealed the Ministry of Transportation has been low-balling winter maintenance contractors in the north. He says this is why roads in northern, Ontario are often not as well taken care of as those in the south.
Vanthof says he continues to put pressure on the MTO to return winter road maintenance to the standards it was years ago.
