Ontario introduces legislation to secure $85M for mercury cleanup near 2 First Nations - 2017-11-15
The Ontario government says it will secure in a trust $85 million to fund mercury cleanup and remediation efforts in the English-Wabigoon River system in northwestern Ontario.
The money was first announced by the province in June, 2017.
The trust fund pledge was made as part of the Liberals' fall economic statement, tabled on Tuesday. The statement typically serves as a mid-year tweak to the budget.
