Plan Nord out shining the Ontario Northern Growth Plan

Ontario's Northern Growth Plan is coming up short when compared to Quebec's newly released Plan Nord.  Lakehead University Economics Professor Livio Di Matteo says Ontario appears to be a framework for future planning while Quebec's plan is a framework for future action.  Di Matteo says our plan calls for 5 million dollars for a Northern Policy Institute while Quebec's plan commits 2.1 billion dollars for various projects over the next 5 years.
