A union official for Ontario Northland workers says comments by the finance minister over the Ring of Fire could actually be good news. While in London, Ontario Charles Sousa said the city would play a pivotal role in the Ring of Fire. Union spokesman Brian Kelly says the vague comment could mean rail will be involved in the chromite discovery. He says if that’s true and since London no longer has a locomotive plant, there’s only one place for the unemployed workers to go and that’s in North Bay or Cochrane within the ONTC. Meanwhile, to Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli the comment suggested the ONTC would have no role in the Ring of Fire.
