Ontario Premier meets with family of fallen miner over safety probes

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne met with the mother and sister of fallen miner Jordan Fram, as well as with a steelworkers union president to discuss probes into mining safety across the province.

Fram and Jason Chenier died in 2011 at Vale's Stobie Mine in Sudbury, Ontario.

The union, Steelworkers Local 6500, is trying to build momentum for safety probes after earlier refusals by the Ontario government to conduct an inquiry of the Fram and Chenier deaths.

The Fram family participate in the work of the Mining Inquiry Needs Everyone's Support (MINES) committee, who also seek prince-wide safety probes.

“There hasn't been a review of mining safety for many years, and that needs to happen,” Wynne said.
