Local Reactions to ELA Announcement

 A level of cautious optimism for the Experimental Lakes Area.

Kenora Rainy River MPP Sarah Campbell says she was excited to hear the government commit to keep the facility open.

However Campbell said they did not clarify how they'll support the ELA.

Campbell adds it's about time the government recognized how important the facility is and how it benefits the province.

At the same time Kenora MP Greg Rickford says the announcement was quite a pleasant surprise.

Rickford says it's great news that the Provincial Government has stepped up to the plate to save the Experimental Lakes Area, East of Kenora.

However, Rickford notes it's not official yet bu is confident an agreement will be reached in the near future.
