Speaking with our newsroom, he touched on topics like the Ring of Fire mining development, which he says should receive federal funding.
O'Toole says it makes sense for the federal government to put money aside for the project since the entire country would benefit from the revenue from selling the resources in the Ring of Fire.
He adds he feels that he has a lot of support in this region, especially from veterans.
The federal Conservative leadership will be decided on May 27. (Staff Photo/Video)
