North Bay, ON – Nov. 20, 2023 – After a flurry of votes, North Bay residents have selected the names for five city snowplows.

"We're thrilled with the community's response to the Name the Plow contest. Over 300 name suggestions came in initially, and more than 600 residents voted for their top five picks," said Coun. Mitchell, Chair of Infrastructure and Operations. "Thanks to everyone who participated. We're looking forward to seeing these named snowplows in action as they clear our streets this winter."
