Expanding horizons

Kenora-Rainy River MPP Greg Rickford was in Fort Frances for two days this week, with a series of funding announcements from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund. One of the key pieces was $2.6 million for an expansion at St. Mary Catholic School. Other announcements included $1.7 million to renovate and expand the Memorial Sports Centre with most of the funding going towards a new pool project, $466,125 to build an extension to the Fort Frances Senior Centre, $376,995 to renovate and upgrade the Sorting Gap Marina docks, and $148,500 to renovate and upgrade the Fort Frances Municipal Airport.
