At least it wasn’t snowing for the start of the May Long Weekend! Q104 staff from Kenora and Dryden gathered on the Greenbelt to welcome back visitors, with the help of Kenora Fire and Emergency Services staff.
Dan Reynard announced his intention to run for the mayor’s seat, which he later won.
"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.
Kenora Rainy-River MPP Sarah Campbell has addressed the House of Commons for the last time, after serving as the region’s MPP for the past six years.
“It is an honour to rise and deliver one final statement in this House as the member from Kenora–Rainy River. Throughout my short time in this place, I have always been a northerner first, believing that northern issues are too important to become a casualty of partisan political wrangling.”
A former Kenora resident celebrated her Emmy win. Liz Mortham works for Entertainment Tonight, which won its fourth Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Entertainment News Program.
“I was very lucky to grow up in Kenora. I had a love of theatre, and the teachers at St. Thomas Aquinas and my family really supported that. I did a lot of theatre, from there I knew that I wanted to get into television.
Mortham has been working for Entertainment Tonight for four years.
