The Seeker has received the following statement from Amanda Brisson, Canada Day Chair.
“It’s with sadness that the Canada Day Committee has decided to cancel this years Canada day festivities at Lamoureux park.
This decision is not a light one but all members feel we are doing what is required to help us beat this COVID 19.
With a large portion of our funding coming from the businesses in Cornwall that are now closed, it will be unlikely that we could rally the money needed to continue with the festivities at a later date.
The committee is working hard on something to represent canada day while still keeping our distance and respecting the rules of isolation. Please keep your heads up and know that we will one day gather to celebrate our great country.
