According to the minister of Northern Development and Mines, Rick Bartolucci, the plan to sell Ontera is on schedule and he expects that the sale will be complete by early next year. Potential bidders have until October 22nd to put their names forward.
When asked about a disagreement with Cochrane Mayor Peter Politis, Bartolucci insists that he has met Politis and had discussions with him. While this is correct, replied Politis, the minister has been unavailable for a face-to-face meeting or a visit to Cochrane.
