Infrastructure, supporting small businesses and affordable housing were only some of the many topics touched on at the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) conference.
“It touched on a number of things,” said Mayor Deb Higgins. “It’s always good to get out and see what other communities are doing.”
Higgins, along with Coun. Patrick Boyle, Coun. Heather Eby and Coun. Candis Kirkpatrick, attended the FCM conference that took place this past weekend in Niagara Falls.
