Re: McGuinty Bets on Big Mining (The Star, March 9)
Dear Sir/Madam,
Well... It would have been a great Throne Speech - if it was 1910.
In this century though Ontario may well want to consider an economic strategy that does not involve large scale irrepairable ecological destruction, will not leave the province dependent on volatile resource commodity prices (ask the Albertans about that one), and that will actually provide long-term sustainable employment for northern communities.
Yours sincerely,
