Better medical care, more roads among Liberal election promises to northern Ontario's Profile


NORTH BAY, Ont. — Ontario Liberal Leader Steven Del Duca says he would attract more residents to the province’s north by building roads and improving access to medical care.

He made the comments at a campaign stop today ahead of a debate between party leaders on northern issues.

Del Duca says he would make sure everyone has access to a family doctor or nurse practitioner within 24 hours, regardless of where they live.

He says he would draw more doctors and nurses to the region by covering the tuition of medical and nursing students who “commit to working in a rural or remote community.”
