Angus Reacts To Misleading Timmins Daily Press Headline
September 13th, 2012 - 3:05pm
I was somewhat surprised to read a headline in your paper that stated I predict a "fiery clash" over the development of the Ring of Fire. At no time during the interview did I make such an assertion. I expressed the fact there is frustration of both the First Nations and mining representatives about the need to have the federal government playing a positive role in ensuring fair negotiations. In no way should this be extrapolated to suggesting there will be "fiery clashes".
Headlines may help sell papers but it is not helpful to be seen fanning tensions that between First Nation communities and other northerners.
All the best,
