Not-for-profit has plans for seniors complex in area

A local committee is looking to work with an organization out of Winnipeg to bring affordable senior living to Fort Frances.

At council's regular meeting on July 13, mayor and councillors heard a presentation from Pete Sanderson and Dr. Norman Blackie from Widlake Properties Inc. on their work in getting a 95-unit seniors complex built in the Transcona neighbourhood of Winnipeg.
