shows there's lots of interest in the upcoming municipal elections.
A standing room audience listened to two of three mayoralty candidates and all 13 candidates for council at the first of four forums scheduled this week.
Economic development was a common theme from all candidates last night.
Former Kenora mayor Dave Canfield believes there are still opportunities in the forest sector.
Former city councillor Andrew Poirier also stated that the local economy would be his main focus
if he wins the October 25th election.
Kenora city councillor Jim Parson was not in attendance. But he did send his regrets through
Chamber of Commerce president Andy Scribilo.
Parson's wife Patti passed away last week after a short battle with cancer.
