Feds don't commit to $1 billion for Ring of Fire
from Northern Ontario Business
The federal government is not ready to make a $1 billion commitment to Ring of Fire infrastructure, said Greg Rickford, Canada's minister of natural resources and FedNor. He made the statement in French, responding to a question from French media in Sudbury. Rickford said the feds have already made investments in the nearby First Nations to increase their educational opportunities. He said future federal funding for the Ring of Fire will need to be tied to specific projects with precise goals.
