2018 is a big year in Sudbury with major projects and a municipal election, but first lets look back at 2017.

Mayor Brian Bigger says it surpasses 2009 where the city hit over 400 million dollars in investment.

2017 was also big for Sudbury as an arena/event centre vote was decided on, people were talking about fire and emergency services and a historic trial ended.

So what does 2018 have in store for the nickel city and its mayor.

Bigger says he is looking forward to the progress in the big projects like the event centre and art gallery/library downtown.
