Council being asked to support Timmins

One of the city's top labour leaders, who also happens to be a candidate for city council, speaks to councillors Monday evening.   Paul Pugh says he's asking for councils support in opposing the closure of the Xtrata ore smelter in Timmins. Pugh says it's an issue that affects all northerners.   Also Monday, councillors will be asked to grant almost 100 thousand dollars towards the construction of a Taiji monument at Marina Park and will be looking at the Community Garden Policy.
