Liberals pledge $1 billion for Ring of Fire


The provincial government is willing to put up $1 billion to develop an all-season transportation corridor to the Ring of Fire if the federal Conservatives match the funds.
“Our government is committed to making a significant investment to fund transportation infrastructure development in the Ring of Fire,” Northern Development and Mines Minister Michael Gravelle said Monday in Thunder Bay.
“We have made important progress over the past few months to bring partners and divergent interests together. Now we need the federal government to match this commitment so that we can move forward on realizing the Ring of Fire’s potential and making important advancements on regional, environmental and economic developments,” said Gravelle (Thunder Bay-Superior North).
