If you are planning on driving in Timmins on Tuesday, you may have to take some another routes.

Timmins is celebrating Le Jour des Franco-Ontariens et Franco-Ontariennes on Tuesday in the downtown core.  The Timmins Police Service says between 12:30pm and 2:30pm, Algonquin Boulevard will be closed between Pine and Balsam for a special ceremony and flag raising at city hall.  The city says students and residents from the francophone community will be filling the street, so it will be closed down for everyone’s safety.
