FINCH — The chairmanship of South Nation Conservation has changed hands, with Osgoode’s Doug Thompson completing his two-year term at the local watershed authority’s historic 70th annual board meeting.

In keeping with tradition at the Feb. 17 session, the outgoing chair was replaced in the top executive position by the vice-chair — in this case, François St-Amour, mayor of The Nation Municipality. Alfred and Plantagenet Mayor Fernand Dicaire was approved as new vice-chair. A low-key election took place around the boardroom table in front of a capacity crowd in the public gallery. Neither candidate was opposed.

Thompson continues to serve on the board as a City of Ottawa representative — and now recognized as past chair.
