Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing MP Carol Hughes is weighing in on the lack of Ring of Fire information in the recently tabled federal budget. Hughes says the Trudeau Liberals appear to be silent on the issue, as she hasn’t been able to find where they stand on the chromite project. She says there is a lot the public has been left in the dark about. She is asking what that is going to mean for the construction of roads and transportation at the remote location.

Hughes says it’s very vague in the book, and because of that, northerners still don’t know how the raw materials will be shipped out of the Ring of Fire. She says if the Liberals mentioned the Ring of Fire in another part of the budget, she hasn’t been able to find it.
