Bob Rae: Ring of Fire mining project needs First Nations consent
from CBC News
Moving ahead with the Ring of Fire will require not just consultation, but the consent of the First Nations nearest to the mining development area in northern Ontario, according to Bob Rae. Rae is the negotiator for the nine Matawa First Nations in their discussions with Ontario about the proposed mining project. Recently, the province and the federal government announced they would jointly fund a $785,000 study to look at the viability of a road that would connect four fly-in First Nations to the provincial highway at Pickle Lake, ON.
