Mauro answers budget criticism

Liberal MPP Bill Mauro says even though not much was said about the Ring of Fire in the budget, the government remains committed to the massive mining development. Mauro says issues surrounding the Ring of Fire are getting attention from a variety of ministries. Mauro is answering criticism from the Chamber of Commerce over how little was mentioned about the Ring of Fire in the budget. Meantime, Mauro is confident public sector workers in Thunder Bay will buy into the government's request for a pay freeze to help reduce the deficit.
