Bridge Talks Planned

Behind the scenes work could begin before Christmas on getting a new bridge build to the Fort William First Nation. It's to replace the James Street Bridge which is closed frequently.    Mayor Keith Hobbs says he was hoping to get the ball rolling this week however a snowstorm forced the postponement of a planning meeting on the issue.  Hobbs says one solution could be to build a temporary bailey bridge until a permanent one can be constructed.
