  • Draft outline in support of the corridor into the ROF.
  • The input assembled in the attached scheduals will summarize  4 specific challenges that may impact the designing of an access route into the ROF. Controversial impacts are merely studies that will inevitably coexist with the construction phase. Although at any rate, what this project needs now are boots on the ground. I am in support of correct progression that would enable an access route for extraction of minerals in the ring of fire area. Scheduals 1-6 are included in the attached documentation which I hope will address the anticipated difficulties that pre-empt completion of a throughway.

  • This northern Ontario resident would like to help design a route for mineral extraction from the Ring of Fire.80468 I wrote the following details in a six-part interpretation in favor of a rail corridor that eventually connects regional communities to the existing east/west rail system in northern Ontario. 80468 Schedual 1 History of Roads The route may require modifications severe enough that a re-examination of alternatives may need to be authorized. One bonus is that quarry sites can be situated far apart if we consider that rail efficiency had been designed to transport aggregate. As an infrastructure project, hwy 11-17 east of Thunder Bay used millions of tons of crushed gravel. Announced for 2010, the costs are a large portion of the $512M federal/provincial funding for this and related efforts completed in 2015. 750,000m3 of course stone was used to upgrade 14.5 km of highway. Along this route, two sites where choosen to manufacture the enormous volume. ...

  • Health Concerns
  • Mining leads to destruction of ecosystems as well as health issues with local populations. The second section of the attached article clearly states the devastation mining can cause. In addition, the company Noront Resaurces Ltd. will use materials found in the Ring of Fire in a Ferrochrome plant they want to build in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The resulting pollution will further increase cancer rates and other illnesses in the area. I find it hard to believe that this will be the only health issue in Ontario that will arise if mining is allowed. Please reconsider. Send environmentally-friendly jobs, not ones that will kill us later on.

Oji-Cree Translation provided by Wawatay Translation Services Project funded by the Ivey Foundation and Mountain Equipment Co-op. Acknowledgements Executive Summary The economic opportunity for new mines in northern Ontario is clear. Global demand for minerals has been soaring, and there’s a tremendous opportunity to create new jobs and economic opportuni- ties. In Canada, Ontario has been a leader in mining for almost a century; responsible for one-third of Canada’s total mined metal production. treaty rights with respect to mining activity, make it a critical time for a greater understanding of the - what mining means in the long-term for northern ecosystems and community health and prosperity. While the life of a mine can last a few years, the ...
