The Liberal’s latest announcement regarding high-speed rail transportation in Southern Ontario is nothing to get excited about.

That is according to Timmins-James Bay MPP Gilles Bisson, who says the Liberals did the same song and dance a year ago to avoid criticism on their lack of funding for transportation up north.

Bisson says Northern Ontarians should be the most angered, considering their long-standing battle with a lack of proper and consistent transportation.

He says all Northern Ontarians want is to be treated as equals to Southern Ontario.

Wynne was in Timmins Wednesday afternoon to speak about the Ring of Fire but not the high-speed rail announcement.
