Premier In Elliot Lake
Three weeks after the families of the Algo Centre mall collapse in Elliot Lake launched an $11 million dollar lawsuit against the developer and the provincial government, the premier popped into its newly established development centre.
Dalton McGuinty says this trip was one of the things on his To-Do list before he walks away from his job as premier. McGuinty says he feels a real connection with the community.
He mused about the inquiry into the mall collapse, his visit coming just 24 hours before Commissioner Paul Belanger hears testimony from local residents, including members of the victim's families.
McGuinty underlines he's not going to try and predict what kind of recommendations will be made to both building codes and disaster response.
