Residents in Hull are bringing a petition to their city council on Tuesday asking that securing a grocery store in the area remains a priority.

An organization called Épicerie de l'Île de Hull coop de solidarité is working with advocacy group ACORN and local residents to promote the issue.

On Tuesday the group is delivering a petition to city councillors and the mayor asking for a commitment that the $300,000 fund for the project will remain set aside for a grocery store.
