An NDP government would support the Ring of Fire.

That’s according to Claude Gravelle, the MP for Nickel Belt, who is seeking re-election. Gravelle says he’s been to the chromite site a few times and talked to  many of the players, including First Nations, and they all want in.

Gravelle cautions before a federal NDP government can move on the Ring of Fire, it needs a commitment from the provincial government. Running against Gravelle are Conservative candidate Aino Laamanen, Marc Serre representing the Liberals, Stuart McCall of the Greens and Dave Starbuck from the Marxist-Leninist party.
