Gelinas says Mattagami River taking too long to clean-up after oil spill

The MPP for Nickel Belt hammered the Liberals on Wednesday over the slow clean-up of the Mattagami River in Gogama.  France Gelinas says it’s been 18 months since a CN train derailed and spilled one million litres of crude oil into the river.  Gelinas says residents were promised clean water after the spill, but she says this is another broken promise by the Liberals.

She says residents of Gogama and the Mattagami First Nation see and smell oil and there are many dead fish in the water.  However, Environment and Climate Change Minister Glen Murray told Gelinas that CN has been doing more work to clean-up the site.  Murray also told the NDP MPP that he shares her concern about the issue.
