Rickford Says Feds Not Idle on Ring of Fire

The Minister responsible for the Ring of Fire says the federal government remains committed to the massive mining project.

Premier Kathleen Wynne and Northern Development and Mines Minister Michael Gravelle are both challenging the feds to get more involved in the project.

Greg Rickford says they have always been at the table.

Rickford says he has a good working relationship with Gravelle and looks forward to further talks to move the Ring of Fire forward.

Last week the provincial government announced a billion dollars for the giant mining project and challenged
the Harper Government to match that funding.
