CORNWALL – A couple of mayors from predominately French speaking communities made a stop at Cornwall City Hall Wednesday (Feb. 13).

Cyrille Simard of Edmundston, N.B. and Paula Assaly of Hawkesbury, Ont. signed the book of recognition while meeting with Cornwall Mayor Bernadette Clement.

Ninety-three per cent of residents in Edmundston have French as their mother tongue. It’s 77 per cent in Hawkesbury. Around 30 per cent consider French their first language in Cornwall.

The two mayors were in Cornwall for the 9th annual support network forum for Francophone immigration.
