Housing's the key.
City councillor Dan Reynard is running for mayor, and he wants to see 200 new units built in Kenora.
"It's something I've been looking at for a while, especially with Dave (Canfield) saying he's finished. So, to actually come in and register. It's an exciting opportunity," he said.
Aside from the construction jobs created, Reynard notes these units would bring in more than $400,000 in taxes, as well as over $200,000 in water rates.
"My goal is I'd would really like to see us retain our seniors, bring in more youth...I'd really like to see our municipality grow," Reynard added.
"There's a lot of opportunities for jobs, but we need that housing," Reynard noted.
Municipal voters go to the polls Oct. 22 across the province. Along with members of council, voters will also be electing trustees.
