With a fresh perspective holding office in the province, Kenora Mayor Dave Canfield is optimistic about the future for the City of Kenora.
"The new premier has said Ontario is now open for business. We're going to give him the opportunity to prove that," he said.
Kenora's mayor is hoping the new provincial government will help streamline the process.
"Start streamlining some of these things and eliminating duplication and red tape. Hopefully, those discussions will be good discussions and we're going to get some movement on it," he said.
Canfield has chosen not to run for municipal office again. He will be stepping aside in October when municipal elections take place.
