The federal government is drafting terms of reference for a regional assessment for the potential development of a mineral-rich area of Northern Ontario, known as the Ring of Fire.

In a recent statement, Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, wrote that he agrees with the merits of conducting a regional assessment in the Ring of Fire district.

Wilkinson was responding to letters from Aroland First Nation band councillor Sheldon Atlookan, Dr. Cheryl Chetkiewicz of the Wildlife Conservation Society of Canada, and Dayna Nadine Scott of the Osgoode Hall Law School and Faculty of Environmental Studies.
