Council wants Far North Act put on hold

The City of Thunder Bay is throwing its support behind a movement aimed at halting the Far North Act. Recently area first nation groups, and northern business communities have asked the McGuinty Government to put the legislation on hold to accomodate more discussion. Councillor Lynda Rydholm says they want to lend their support and take a stand for the smaller communities in the Northwest. Council wants the government to withdraw the current legislation and work with first nations and Northern Ontario communities.
