QUEEN’S PARK – Ontario PC Leader Tim Hudak today issued the following statement regarding the tragic accident Wednesday night at the Stobie Mine in Sudbury.
“On behalf of the Ontario PC Caucus, I want to offer our deepest condolences to the families of the Vale employees who died tragically at Stobie Mine yesterday.
“In my time as Minister of Northern Development and Mines, I worked closely with Ontario’s miners and came to understand the tight-knit bond among the men and women of the mining industry. Fellow workers care deeply about each other’s safety, and a devastating accident like this touches every person in that community.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and colleagues of these two men, and with the people of Sudbury during this very difficult time.”
