Letter to the Editor: Thanks for Canada Day

I had the the honour of acting as Chair of the Cornwall Canada Day Committee for 15 years. During this period I was blessed with an outstanding group of dedicated volunteers and tremendous support from many business owners. The staff and elected officials of the City of Cornwall always went “above and beyond” to ensure Canada’a birthday was celebrated in style.

Drawing on my 15 years of experience I want to sincerely commend and congratulate Chair Amanda Brisson and Members of the 2019 Cornwall Canada Day Committee for the outstanding celebration they held at Lamoureux Park to celebrate our country’s 152nd Birthday.

I know the incredible amount of work and dedication it takes to plan, organize, fundraise, and execute an successful event like Canada Day. As the Member of Parliament for Stormont Dundas and South Glengarry I sincerely thank and congratulate the 2019 Canada Day Committee and staff of the City of Cornwall for a very successful day and a spectacular fireworks display.
