Kitchenuhmaykoosib Visited by Countess of Wessex and Premier Wynne
Kitchenuhmaykoosib – The Countess of Wessex, Sophie Rhys-Jones, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, and a delegation of guests visited with Kitchenuhmaykoosib Chief Donny Morris and the people of the community in Northwestern Ontario this week.
Kitchenuhmaykoosib or KI is located approximately 377 miles north of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, or 270 miles north of Sioux Lookout, Ontario.
The community has faced many challenges in recent years. The Royal Visit offered the opportunity for the community to share in its hospitality and to offer both Premier Wynne and the Countess a first hand look at the issues that KI faces.
The Canadian Rangers provided an honour guard, and the Countess, along with Premier Wynne were made honourary Canadian Rangers.
