Sparsely-populated Ring of Fire zone to get high-speed internet at cost of $67.1 million to taxpayers
from Toronto Star
The sparsely populated, but mineral-rich, Ring of Fire zone in northwestern Ontario will be getting high-speed internet at a cost of $67.1 million to taxpayers. Funding for the project, which involves the installation of 880 kilometres of new fibre-optic cable, is being announced in Thunder Bay by the federal and provincial governments in hopes of spurring the mining of an estimated $60 billion in chromite, gold and other deposits in the region.
