Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke Independent candidate Hector Clouthier says the government tends to put company offices in large cities.

But he says his job solution for the Barry’s Bay area is to fight for future offices to come to this riding.

Clouthier is fighting for the seat against Liberal candidate Jeff Lehoux, Green candidate Stefan Klietsch, incumbent Conservative candidate Cheryl Gallant and NDP candidate Dan McCarthy.
