Ontario creating Ring of Fire corporation

It seems the province has committed seriously to developing the Ring of Fire. After months of little movement, the creation of a corporation to oversee planning and development is a step forward. Unfortunately, there is no immediate comment on the role the ONTC might play in the corporation, but I think that the ONTC should be a vital component for transportation and communication infrastructure.

John Vanthof Calls on the Government to Listen to Recommendations

MPP John Vanthof has called on the government to listen to the recommendations made by the Ministerial Advisory Committee for the future of the ONTC. He emphasises that the continued delays are hurting people across the north as they don't know what will happen.

In the release, Vanthof talks about a report released by the Committee. Is this in the public domain? Does anyone have a copy they could share with me?
