Bourgouin says he and his family have been proud to call Kapuskasing their home for the past 23 years and look forward to many more.

“We have such a great community and should be proud of that,” he said. “So I had a chance to speak on that this morning to promote Kapuskasing and the 100th anniversary of Kapuskasing.”
