Demand For Mine Safety Inquiry

The province's labour minister is turning aside a demand by the NDP to hold an inquiry into mine safety in the province. This comes following a weekend mining death in Sudbury. Labour Minister Yasir Naqvi says the government is relying on its review of mining health and safety to provide answers. The review will stop in Marathon May 1st. Provincial NDP Leader Andrea Horwath says an inquiry would dig deeper into possible issues in mining safety then a review.
