Highway 144 between Sudbury and Timmins will be the site of a protest Thanksgiving Monday. Nickel Belt MPP France Gelinas says residents of Gogama will be protesting the lengthy time it’s taking CN to remove oil from the Mattagami River following an oil spill this year.
Gelinas has been after the Wynne Liberals to order CN to clean up the spill and doesn’t understand why they don’t force the issue. She says it’s not the government that will pay for the clean-up. In response, Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca fell back on a phrase the Liberals use on some issues where they say they want to make sure they get it right.
