Not a lot of change in council make-up

The faces around the table in the Timmins Council Chamber won’t change a whole lot once the new slate is sworn in.

In the biggest ward, Ward 5, the former Town of Timmins, incumbents Kristin Murray, Andrew Marks and Cory Robin will fill three of the four seats.  One-term councillor in that ward and one-term mayor Steve Black takes the final one.

Ward 1 had no election, with Rock Whissell  being acclaimed.

Ward 2 – South Porcupine – sees incumbent Mickey Auger ousted by newcomer Lorne Feldman.

In Ward 3, Schumacher, Bill Gvozdanovic  returns to the seat he once held, replacing Joe Campbell, who ran for mayor and lost.

In Ward 4, Porcupine and the extreme east end, John Curley returns rather handily.


Online voting continues to gallop through Timmins municipal elections.

Monday was the third consecutive time that voters could use the online way to vote, starting when advance polls opened on October 11th,  right up until all voting stopped Monday night.

Only 12,000 or 42% cast a vote in any format, but just under 8,800 did it online.  That’s an incredible 72%, up from 55% in 2018.
