"We had an incredible experience filming 'All My Puny Sorrows' in North Bay. The local film office went above and beyond on behalf of the film. The local crew was talented and industrious. Everyone we came in contact with genuinely wanted us to succeed and to return again, which we undoubtedly will.'

"I’m a Stunt Coordinator, Screenwriter and Director. Last year, I was the stunt coordinator on Cardinal season 2 and 3, and I loved shooting in and around North Bay.  I miss it when I’m not there.  Just wanted to say I’ve got a crush on your city."
