Tourist Centre To Reopen

Ontario's former tourist information centre in Fort Frances will be reopening.

Mayor Roy Avis says they've reached an agreement with the province for the town to take over the shuttered building on a one-year lease.

Since the province's closure of the facility two years ago, the town has had students under a tent at the border hand out information.

Avis says this year they will work from inside the centre.

Other organizations had expressed interest in setting up their operations inside, but Avis says the  lease does not permit that for now.
