Taras Natyshak calls for Legislature to resume quickly

Special to the RTT

Newly-elected Essex MPP Taras Natyshak is calling on the Liberal Leader Dalton McGuinty to sit down with other parties to set a date to convene the first session of Legislative business in the House but also key Legislative committees like Finance.

Natyshak, who is in Queens Park for his first meeting as a member of Andrea Horwath’s expanded NDP caucus, said the provincial government should immediately tackle issues like job creation, health care, and making life more affordable.

“Andrea Horwath and our NDP caucus are already at work, proposing solutions that work for people,” he said. “It’s time for MPPs from all the parties to get together, make this minority government work, and address the needs of Ontario.”

Natyshak said the voters sent a clear message to Queens Park that they want a different kind of politics.

“People voted for change — they voted to change the way we do things in Queens Park,” he said. “I’m looking forward to this challenge, and to being a strong voice for the people of Essex.”

Natyshak is one of nine new MPPs in the NDP caucus, which is now 17 members strong.

“We’re going to bring a new energy to Queens Park,” he said. “I’m going to stand up strongly for the people of Essex, and I’m going to work constructively to get results for everyone in Ontario.”
