Northern municipalities are nervous about a lack of movement from the Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry.

According to Kapuskasing Mayor Alan Spacek since the last announcement was made by Minister McGarry to delay the posting of a draft guide very little has happened.

Spacek says that municipalities feel as if the process has taken too long to get moving, wasting valuable time.

He says they are pleased with the postponement and establishment of a stakeholder group, even if things are moving slowly.

Currently, the SAR guide has yet to be finalized and released to the public.
