Nine days after his death, Vic Power was the subject of a tribute in the House of Commons on Monday.
Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus called the former mayor of Timmins “a political icon” who took his skills and concerns as a high school guidance counsellor to people in public life.
“Vic first ran for council in 1966,” Angus stated. “He gave the city four decades of public service and oversaw the transition from a roughneck mining town to a regional centre of business, health and education. He set a standard that politicians of every level should want to emulate.”
