The North of Superior EMS strategic plan is causing a lot of rift in the region. Mayors and officials at a number of municipalities spoke to council last night to give their concerns about the potential of shifting EMS resources away from the district and into Thunder Bay. Terrace Bay Mayor Mike King says his community just went through a tragic incident that shows how important EMS services are. In the end council voted in favour of the EMS Plan but agreed that no district changes would be made without public consultation. The plan includes 2 new ambulances that will be funded over the next 3 years.
