The Métis Nation Region 4 council member Mitch Case learned of the oil spill in their traditional waters last week, not from Algoma Steel, but from the media.
“Our community was made aware of the spill by local media and were provided some information by Algoma Public Health later in the day. We still have no information about what actually occurred,” said Case in an e-mail to SaultOnline. “We understand that sometimes accidents happen, but it is, in our view, unacceptable for Algoma Steel, or any industry operating in our community to withhold information about the cause, the scope, the remediation plan, accountability plans etc. It appears Algoma Steel needs a course in Indigenous Relations, Section 35 Constitutional Rights and corporate social responsibility.”
