Amendment a game-changer for Cassellholme redevelopment

It’s not often that the government and opposition can put their differences aside, but Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli says that it was too important not to.

Fedeli says that the three major parties put faith in each other to do the right thing when it came to the amendment.

Without it, the City of North Bay would have been on the hook for a large portion of the cost.
