The local Francophone community and the broader City of North Bay has lost a leader.

Family announced on social media that Lou Gagne passed away today.

Mayor Al McDonald posted a tribute to Gagne, saying she was a very special person who made a difference, brought people together, made friends easily and made things happen.

“Today we learned of her passing and it came as a shock.” McDonald wrote. “Our community lost a quiet leader and someone that was well liked and respected. Lou brought people together. This is a sad day for our family and the community. If you didn’t know Lou or had not met her, you truly missed out. Today, July 2nd, 2020, the City of North Bay lost an ambassador, a friend, a leader and caring person. God Speed Lou”
