The Minister of Francophone affairs was in Kapuskasing to discuss business.

Ontario’s Minister Responsible for Francophone Affairs Caroline Mulroney was in town to discuss with some local francophone business owners the current state of the economy in the area.

Mulroney was present at the first of what will be several round tables in different parts of the province, to be held by different members of parliament.

The round tables, an idea brought forth by Economic Development Minister Jim Wilson, will see different communities sharing their thoughts on employment and the economy.

Mulroney wanted to hear from local owners about how the province can help to increase their financial success.

She says if there is to be success economically and growth in Kapuskasing, it will mean reducing the administrative burden on most local businesses.
