Temagami Municipal Council deadlocked in an attempt to appoint a new Councillor.
In order to replace councillor John Kenrick, who resigned his position recently, Temagami Council requested applicants from within the community to apply for the vacant position. Three did so, submitted written responses to questions and were interviewed. In a closed session to select a winning candidate the Council was not able to agree on a candidate. As a result there will be a very expensive by-election for this position in the next few months.
