Few developments regarding the ONTC have trickled over the wires in the past week. One might say that no news is good news, and in this case the lack of developments has allowed alternate plans, notably the idea of moving the ONTC under a port authority, to gain acceptance.
In a new release, the GCA outlines how the North Bay Council is looking to back the port authority plan along with other northern Ontario communities.
Following Dalton McGuinty's resignation, the provincial government has been in tatters and the port authority plan offers an opportunity for the province to largely rid itself of the ONTC mess while also showing support for northern Ontario. It seems like a win-win situation.
