Councillor Matthew Shoemaker issued the following statement concerning the Noront announcement at City Hall Tuesday.
This is a great day for Sault Ste. Marie. After a thorough and competitive process, Noront has determined our community is the ideal place to do business in Northern Ontario. As we embark on the next phase of Noront’s due diligence, there will be many questions, many answers, and a lot of leg work needed to move this project forward. I look forward to working with Noront, City Council and our Provincial and Federal governments to ensure today’s enthusiasm translates into real results tomorrow.
