CANTON -- Congressional Representative Bill Owens was to attend the Canton Rotary Club’s noon luncheon and take a tour of a Potsdam business today, but the weather forced him to cancel the trip.

Owens, a Democrat from Plattsburgh who represents the North Country’s huge 21st Congressional District, was to speak with Rotary members at the meeting in the Best Western University Inn.

Then he was to visit NexID Biometrics on Main Street in Potsdam, a company formed out of the research conducted at Clarkson University on biometric identification security systems.
