Ring Of Fire Regional Framework Agreement

The construction of the road — and other resource access developments that will be proposed for the territory, which will also involve neighboring municipalities such as the Attawapiskat and Fort Albany First Nations — will also involve consultations with those First Nations, he said. “Their interests are also respected,” Achneepineskum said in an interview, expressing his understanding of how the government intends to act. On June 12, 2012, Chief Cornelius Wabasse First Nation and North Development and Mines Minister Rick Bartolucci signed an agreement that “requires Ontario to provide social, communal and economic support for development to facilitate the municipality`s participation in the Ring of Fire.” On April 26, 2013, Tony Clement called the Ring of Fire Ontario`s oil sands. [5] On June 13, 6, 2013, Cliffs announced that it was suspending its $3.3 billion project pending the outcome of negotiations between First Nations and Queen`s Park. [10] Clement said the ring of fire would bring “a hundred years of mining activity that will relocate jobs and economic activity for generations.” [6] Those who support the development of the Ring of Fire will no doubt demonstrate the federal decision as interference from environmentalists and a disgruntled First Nation. . . .
