Closed-Door Meeting

Little is being said about a closed-door meeting this week in Thunder Bay involving Mayors from four northwestern Ontario communities and the CEO of Resolute Forest Products.

MPP Invites Health Minister to Region

The ongoing efforts to staff the Rainy River Health Centre's emergency department was among issues prompting the MPP to issue the invite.
