News Bisson To Announce Candidacy Thursday SHARE ON: Nick Birnie, staff Wednesday, Jan. 10th, 2018 Photo Credit: Supplied One Northern MPP will make a final decision Thursday on which electoral riding he will run to represent. Timmins-James Bay MPP Gilles Bisson is expected to make an official announcement Thursday afternoon in Kapuskasing regarding his riding in the next provincial election. Bisson has already voiced his current frustrations with the new ridings, claiming he will lose out on parts of his current following regardless his choice. He is expected to announce whether he will run to represent Mushkegowuk-James Bay or Timmins, a choice that he says, either way, will disconnect him from many relationships he has created over the years. The announcement is expected to take place at a residence on Riverside Drive around 11:00am.
