Key Ring of Fire official steps down

Wednesday January 30, 2013

The member of Ontario’s Ring of Fire Secretariat responsible for dealing with First Nations has stepped down from the position.

Deborah Richardson of Pabineau First Nation joined the Secretariat in August 2012, taking on the position vacated by Harvey Yesno when he stepped down to run for Nishnawbe Aski Nation grand chief.

Richardson informed stake-holders in January that she was taking a two-year leave from the Ontario government.

David De Launay will take over from Richardson on the Secretariat.

De Launay has spent most of his career working within the Ontario government in Aboriginal Affairs and the Ministry of Natural Resources. He most recently worked as Assistant Deputy Minister of Special Projects, reviewing oil and gas pipeline development in the province.
