Canada Day


Fred Sherwin will be at Canada Day with the Steumer Tulip and copies of the Eastender to hand out.


Petrie Island

The phase II sand extension may not be financially feasible.



The website was down for a while due to problems with Magma, but it is now back on line. Thank you to David for his work on the website as well as for his contributions as Chair of the Canada Day Committee.

Elections of Class A Directors

David indicated that nominations had closed the week before. There are four positions available, and four nominations in total, therefore they are acclaimed. They are Zybina Richards, Ted Macias, Don Pottier, and Brenda Spearman. They will meet and appoint their positions.


David expressed some concern regarding the new ice surfaces. Doug Cross from AACP representing the ice surfaces and athletic complex at Cairine Wilson, did not get on the short list. Fred indicated the City had determined that they could afford 2 ice surfaces. The Plan Doug Cross proposed, was beyond the scope of the City.



        Some tax shift will occur for homeowners.

        Negotiations are ongoing with Serco and the two ice surfaces. Traffic and parking issues still need to be addressed. One public meeting will be part of the 3P process.

Councillor McNeely

        The ward is addressing the West Nile issue. Grass needs to be kept down and ditches cleared.

        There will be a sand turning event at Petrie in the near future.

        There will be a connection of roads around Innes and Blair to Walkley. This improvement to East to West traffic could help some congestion with the split.



Meeting adjourned at 9:06 p.m.
