Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak believes the government is not taking advantage of the Ring of Fire.
Speaking with northern media recently, Hudak says the area can make Ontario just as financially strong as other provinces.
Hudak says he would put a cabinet minister in charge of the Ring of Fire who had have more authority over job and wealth creation in the province.
He adds that he will also work to create transit infrastructure.
Hudak suggests that Ontario needs a premier who will champion the project at Queen's Park.
