While on a tour of the MNO office in Thunder Bay, the minister received gifts from MNO staff. Community Wellness Coordinator Joan Panizza presented the minister with a shoulder satchel with a Métis sash design. Regional Employment and Training Coordinator Paula Bouchard presented Minister Zimmer with a carved wooden eagle feather locally crafted from a piece of cedar.
