Ignace Council is going back to a familiar face as Mayor. Council has agreed to appoint Lee Kennard as Mayor, citing the significant cost of a by-election as one of the reasons behind the decision. A delegation asked Council to put Kennard back in the top position, citing his huge electoral win last October and his strong performance as Mayor. Kennard resigned on January 27th, but had a change of heart 5-days later. Council legally deemed the position open, prompting a debate on what should happen next. He will be sworn back in as Mayor on March 13th.
