NWO concerns voiced at Queen's Park

The mayor is confident the energy concerns of Northwestern Ontario are now understood clearly at Queens Park. Keith Hobbs says after a meeting with Energy Minister Brad Duguid Monday there is an understanding that the priority here is the distribution, transmission and pricing of electricity. Duguid promised to come back with an answer. Hobbs says they also met with Health Minister Deb Matthews and discussed the transferring of non emergency patients and detox beds for the city.
