The NDP are grilling the Wynne Liberals over the lack of mention of the Ring of Fire in the budget.

The party’s northern development critic Mike Mantha says just last month the Liberals talked about their one billion dollar commitment to the project.

Mantha has criticized the Liberals for continually re-announcing the one billion dollar commitment but never spending the money.

Interim northern development minister Bill Mauro used Mantha’s attack tactics against him.

Mantha says he was told in March the money was still there and then says everything changed in last Thursday’s budget.

Mauro adds the stakeholders connected with the Ring of Fire know the Liberals remain committed to the massive mining project.
