The municipal campaign is also heating up in the Ottawa Valley where signs to re-elect Pembroke Mayor Ed Jacyno are popping up around town.

The mayor officially kicked off his re-election campaign for a third term in office Wednesday night.

Jacyno, who is a Pembroke native, says promoting a high-speed rail service between Pembroke and Ottawa is one of his top priorities.

Jacyno was first elected to city council in 1997, and became mayor in 2003. So far, he only faces one challenger: Stanley Sambey.
