Fredericton, NB (October 10, 2012) –Fredericton Mayor Brad Woodside spent the first week of October as a presenter at a number of regional i-Canada events.  The intent of the workshops was to bring together business and public sector leaders on both coasts of the country to further regional approaches for leveraging ultra-high-speed broadband networking resources.

Mayor Woodside, who is a member of i-CANADA’s Governors Council, said that “competition between our communities is destructive.  We need to band together, and act as regions to build the infrastructure and applications Canadians need in order to compete globally.”

i-CANADA is the movement to create an “Intelligent Nation,” comprised of communities with digital inclusion, employment growth and investment-worth innovation.
