Former Liberal MP and Ontario NDP leader Bob Rae has talked to the federal Liberal Northern Ontario caucus about the Ring of Fire. A couple of years ago Rae was hired by the Matawa Chiefs Council to help advance the chromite project. Rae told the MPs where the First Nation group stands on the project. Without divulging too much, Rae says there are challenges to develop the Ring of Fire but also opportunities. The MP for Nickel Belt, Marc Serre, says Rae’s presentation has given Liberal MPs a better idea to ensure the chiefs’ voices are heard before the project moves ahead.
