Town lobbies for funding at ROMA

Town representatives recently had the ear of members of provincial parliament and brought forward key issues affecting Fort Frances.

Coun. John McTaggart, Coun. Wendy Brunetta and Mayor Caul travelled to Toronto last weekend for the Rural Ontario Municipal Association (ROMA) conference where they met with various ministers to discuss much needed funding and local concerns.

Doctor recruitment in focus at RRDMA
