A city official told us they did receive an e mail on North Bay getting honourable mention in the ‘Code of Silence Award’ by a group of media and free expression groups.

However, the official says the e mail provided no basis why North Bay was nominated.

They said a call was put out for nominations, a four person jury was assigned to review them but there’s no mention of how many communities were nominated and how many nominations North Bay received.

The official emphasized North Bay doesn’t operate any differently than other municipalities and is not putting up barriers.
