The three-day Northeastern Municipal Conference begins on Wednesday in North Bay, and will feature all three political party leaders.

Premier Kathleen Wynne and NDP leader Andrea Horwath will both be speaking on Thursday, while Conservative Leader Patrick Brown will speak on Wednesday afternoon.

There’s going to be a trade show, a banquet, an address from Steve Paikin, host of TVO’s The Agenda, and a minister’s forum on Friday morning as well.

FONOM President Alan Spacek says it will contain information sessions for those in attendance.

Spacek also says the meetings allow municipal leaders to question ministers in person.

Opening ceremonies for the conference kick off at 12:45pm on Wednesday at Nipissing University.
