Brousseau launches mayoral campaign

Details on Johanne Brousseau’s vision for North Bay are emerging. 

The mayoral candidate outlined three pillars as she launched her campaign Thursday night. 

“Community well-being, innovative infrastructure and economic prosperity,” she says. “We conducted some focus groups from a variety of citizens in North Bay and these were their main issues.” 

She says mental health, addictions and homelessness are priorities along with economic growth and sustainability.

She also says her plans are progressive with road and infrastructure upgrades and she has a climate change action plan, too. 

After winning a councillor seat and finishing second in the last election, Brousseau felt she was ready to run for mayor. 

“I wanted more of a challenge and I’m ready to grow into this position,” she says, pointing out that after about a year into the last term of council, a prominent businessman approached her at a media conference. 

“He was probably one of the first people who said ‘Johanne, you’re doing a really good job you should think about being mayor’ so he planted that seed,” she says. 

Brousseau wouldn’t identify the individual but did say he was an executive on the Chamber of Commerce. 

Two other people, Peter Chirico and Leslie McVeety are also running for mayor. 

30 people are vying for councillor spots. 

Election Day is Monday, October 24.
