The mayor of the Region of Queens says he's proud of his last four years as mayor.
The current council was sworn-in just months after the closure of the Bowater Mersey Paper Mill in 2012.
Christopher Clarke says there was initial panic but feels the community is thriving.
"We have become more dynamic in our thinking and certainly much more positive as a community and you can see the results when you're downtown you can feel the results that things are better."
Clarke says Queens Place Emera Centre has been an asset, despite its deficit.
