A former federal Liberal candidate from the north is correcting a misconception some people have about why the Ring of Fire is stalled. Heather Wilson, who ran in Algoma Manitoulin Kapuskasing, says the chromite project has not been delayed by First Nation opposition. Wilson was at the federal Liberal’s biennial convention in Winnipeg and says a First Nation group also there set the record straight.
The group was the Aboriginal Peoples Commission of Canada which says it fully realizes how the project benefits everyone. Wilson says the main reason the Ring of Fire hasn’t advanced is because governments haven’t worked together on it.
