Max Kennedy of the Green Party says the Ring of Fire needs a more inclusive model to be successful.

He says a realistic timeline for development through cooperation is the key to getting the project off the ground.

Kennedy says the Green Party’s strength is being able to find common ground with other parties.

He says he’s more realistic about the project’s timeline.

He says it could take more than four years to begin generating jobs.

Kennedy is running against the Liberal’s Todd Lever, the NDP’s Charlie Angus and the Conservative’s John Curley.

The election is set for October 19th.
