It's finally here.

Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada activities officially begin tonight with the opening faceoff being held at the Lake of the Woods Museum.

Kenora Mayor Dave Canfield touched on the excitement level around the city.

“People are talking about it, there are signs everywhere. Everybody is wearing sweaters and jerseys whether it's a Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada jersey or their team's favourite jersey,” Canfield said. “I've had people calling me from out out of town asking 'how do I get a ticket for this, or how do I get a ticket for that' and I have to tell them everything is pretty much sold out.”

Canfield is looking forward to the opening faceoff tonight at the Lake of the Woods Museum. Lanny McDonald and Darcy Tucker will serve as captains as they pick teams for tomorrow night's alumni game at the Rec Centre.

As if Scotiabank Hockey Day in Canada wasn't enough, Canfield will be attending a historic moment when it comes to local health care tomorrow.

Treaty Three Grand Chief Francis Kavanaugh, the Kenora Chiefs Advisory chiefs, Metis Council and Kenora area local municipalities are coming together to sign a resolution agreeing to the development of an All Nations Health Care System. The agreement will include the construction of an All Nations Hospital and Campus.

Canfield discussed the importance of the agreement.

“This is tremendous. It's sort of a milestone in working relationships with our neighbouring communities and coming together on something as important as health care. It's probably the number one issue with everyone nowadays, proper health care and getting the health care needs you need.”

Canfield added the equal partnership with neighbouring communities should create a better working relationship in other areas moving forward.

The official signing will take place tomorrow afternoon at the Wauzhushk Onigum roundhouse.
