The New Democrat for Algoma Manitoulin Kapuskasing is upset with comments from the president of the treasury board over the Ring of Fire. MP Carol Hughes claims Tony Clement is making a case for why the feds don’t have to be as involved in the huge chromite discovery. Hughes, says Clement made the comments while in the north talking to businesses. She adds even the Ontario Chamber of Commerce is confused over Clement’s statement calling it perplexing. Hughes says to say the least, northern communities and First Nations are not impressed by Clement’s comments. She adds the chromite discovery has already been delayed numerous times and needs federal support to get it off the ground.
