Draft Feasibility Study Released

The Western Ontario Warden's Caucus today released a draft copy of the feasability study completed by Campbell Patterson Communications. The broadband steering committee and the consultants have been presenting the report to interested stakeholders since the report was received by the Caucus at their August meeting.  The report has been redacted so that costing and other proprietary information have been removed.
