CORNWALL, Ont. – Brockville Mayor David Henderson had a meeting of the minds Monday with his Cornwall counterpart.

Henderson met with Leslie O’Shaughnessy, where he first signed the city’s book of recognition.

The two then sat down to talk about economic development, budgets and taxation, as well as raising the profile of Eastern Ontario.

Henderson also met with Cornwall’s Syrian Refugee Task Force to share some of his experiences with welcoming Syrian refugees in the City of the Thousand Islands.

“Cornwall and Brockville have a lot of things in common beyond our close proximity,” said Mayor O’Shaughnessy. “It was a great opportunity to share ideas and discuss common issues that all municipalities face.”

Henderson is the second Leeds-Grenville mayor to come to Cornwall.

Just before Christmas, Prescott Mayor Brett Todd stopped in Cornwall for a brief visit.
