Exciting news about Call of the Northland! The Ontario Auditor General released her report in December and concluded that the actual cost of divestment is considerably higher than the government predicted. In fact, divestment could cost more than $820 million. In the past few months, the government has also backed away from divestment and is looking instead at transformation for the ONTC. In 2012, I set out to write a book about a journey aboard the Northlander and the intrigue surrounding the proposed divestment of the ONTC. Essentially, the ONTC divestment is over and my book will be released this fall. Stay tuned for updates as I prepare Call of the Northland for publication. You can also follow developments on my main website.
