A Tory MPP from rural Southern Ontario says the Liberals are squandering the Ring of Fire. Toby Barrett says they still haven’t started spending the $1 billion on infrastructure they promised more than a year. Barrett adds the Liberals have such a convoluted consultation process with First Nations that investors have lost interest in Ontario mining.
Barrett says there’s no excuse for the world’s largest chromite deposit to remain stalled an un-developed. The Conservative MPP says the Ring of Fire is becoming a lost opportunity.
