The originally church started in 1881 as St. Mary's of the Lake. The cornerstone for the Pro-Cathedral of the Assumption was laid in June 1904. The actual cathedral of the diocese is in Sault Ste. Marie (Precious Blood Cathedral). However, because the diocesan bishop has always lived in North Bay, the church has been called the 'Pro-Cathedral', and continues to be the Bishop's parish. ‘Pro’ means “instead of” or “in the place of”. The fountain in front is called J.W. Richardson (1864-1938) Fountain, in commemoration of the mayor and horticulturist who dedicated his whole life in the betterment and beautification of the City of North Bay.

Excerpt from ontariowarmemorials.blogspot.com:

North Bay is known as the Gateway to the North, and home to CFB North Bay. The memorial is a CF-100 Canuck mounted on a concrete pedestal. Plaques mounted on the concrete tell the story of the aircraft and give thanks to the men and women of 414 Squadron, 406 Wing, Royal Canadian Air Force and to the citizens of North Bay for their support. It was erected by 406 Wing, Royal Canadian Air Force Association in 1971.

The CF-100 "Canuck" was the last Canadian designed and built fighter flown by the Royal Canadian Air Force. It first entered service in 1950 and the last retired from service in 1981, having been used in reconnaissance, training, and electronic warfare roles. The unit insignia on this aircraft is that of 414 'Black Knight' Squadron, which was based at CFB North Bay from 1957 to 1964 and again from 1972 to 1992. During the Squadron's first stay in North Bay, it flew CF-100s.

This sculpture demonstrates the concept of difference by not being just one of the forms it suggests. It is not a column, not a totem, not a beacon, not a tree. Combining several materials underlies the interdependency of all minorities. Together, differences form an equilibrium as fundamental as an ecosystem.
