The flags at all City of Timmins facilities will be flying at half-mast, in honour and memory of local politician and broadcaster, Don Dewsbury, who passed away yesterday at the age of 77.

Don, who moved to Timmins from Toronto, was well-known in the community for his time at CFCL-TV and MCTV, and the 30 plus years he spent on Council.

“We would like to extend our deepest condolences to Don’s family and friends,” said Mayor George Pirie.

“Our community has lost an outstanding citizen, who served this city for 30 plus years on Council, and continued to offer support to our current administration up until very recently. He was a true gentlemen, and his knowledge and goodwill shall be truly missed.”
