NorthernLife.ca will be carrying former interim Liberal leader and Ontario premier Bob Rae's speech in Sudbury.

His lecture is entitled "Mining and First Nations: Sustainability is the Only Option." Click the link to watch the speech live.

Rae is the March 6 speaker at the second annual Goring Family Lecture on Sustainable Economic Development, being held at Laurentian University’s Fraser Auditorium.

After he retired from from federal politics in 2013, Rae took on the task of serving as an advisor to the Matawa First Nations Tribal Council with respect to the Ring of Fire deposit in northwester Ontario.

Development on the multi-billion-dollar development has stalled, and little progress has been made on a number of oustanding issues, including impacts and benefits to First Nations in the area of the deposit.
