News Liberal silence over ONTC survival plan worries NDP SHARE ON: James King, staff Thursday, Mar. 20th, 2014 The NDP MPP for Timiskaming-Cochrane is worried that the Liberals haven’t reacted to a plan to save the ONTC. John Vanthof says the survival plan has been in Liberal hands for several weeks but they remain silent on its implementation. Vanthof says that’s a concern because it may mean the Liberals no longer want to save the ONTC but rather want to resume plans to sell it. The survival plan was drafted by employees and senior management at Ontario Northland.
