Two levels of government will converge on Ottawa next week, but federal matters likely won’t top the agenda.

Our Primier, Minister and Municipal leaders will be right in the middle of it. In fact, over 2,000 participants will gather in Ottawa for the Association of Municipalities Conference next week.
