Don Rennick has been front and centre criticizing the City of North Bay and Council that came to a boiling point in 2016.
Don Rennick, well known for his run-ins with City Council and was actually blacklisted from presenting at city council by North Bay Mayor Al McDonald after Rennick stated that city staff was misleading council during a May 2016 council meeting.
He even showed up at city council in October of 2016 with duct tape over his mouth protesting his ban from making public presentations to council.
Rennick has publicly stated that the council and staff need to do a better job concentrating on protecting the interests of taxpayers and the City on North Bay.
