North Bay Mayor Al McDonald was among the five northern mayors to meet for a quarterly meeting. The mayors of the north’s five largest cities meet every three months to discuss common issues and how to resolve them. The mayors reinforced a commitment to keep updating the Northern Priorities Paper which was started nearly three years ago when McDonald was first elected. For Timmins mayor Steve Black and the mayors of Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie, this was their first ever northern mayors meeting following their election wins in October.
