Rory Ring (CEO of the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber Of Commerce and Board of Directors for the Downtown Association) interviewed by Sault Online. 

The Downtown Association is asking all available to come, lend your voice, and give you opinions at a City of Sault Ste. Marie open house discussing the 2 hour free parking lots in the Downtown.


“Eliminating free parking in the downtown would just cause another barrier for a lot of these local retailers…by in large we’re having an issue with exatly what’s been proposed. ”
-Josh Ingram
