The north was built on natural resources and the Conservatives have already taken steps to ensure the continuity of the industry according to John Curley.  He says partnering with small business will help generate jobs by making quality of life changes to the logistics.  He says the Mineral Exploration Tax credit will help industries like mining in the riding to generate jobs and open new operations.  Curley is running against Green Party candidate Max Kennedy, the Liberal’s Todd Lever and the NDP’s Charlie Angus.  The 2015 federal election is set for Monday, October 19th.
