Councillor Comments



Bridgetown – Councillor Hurlburt reminded everyone about the Canada Day fireworks taking place in Bridgetown on July 1st, and of Riverfest taking place later in July.



District 11 – Councillor LeBlanc attended the Middleton Relay for Life on the weekend. It was well organized and took place inside the rink this year, with good activities and entertainment. She applauded the volunteers who spend many hours organizing this event.



District 6 – Councillor Morrison noted the recent tenth anniversary of King’s Shorts, showcasing eight, ten-minute plays which were expertly written, staged and featured enthusiastic and talented local actors. Two District 6 residents featured prominently: Gail Chester directed The Darwin Club; and her son who was the featured actor in Top the Timer. The Cornwallis Military Museum Open House is being held on Sunday 3 July from 2pm to 4pm at the Museum, North Broadway Avenue in Cornwallis. Assassination of Ms. Jo Cox, member of the Mother of All Parliaments at Westminster, was killed last week shortly after meeting with constituents. Left to mourn are her husband and children, as well as a sorrowful and grateful United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and parliamentarians everywhere. In Canada we have had violence towards elected representatives throughout our history. One of the most memorable was the killing of Darcy McGee just blocks from Parliament Hill.  We must ensure reasonable and prudent safety and security measures to protect representatives and staff members with whom we work on a daily basis to serve our residents. He wished all a Happy Canada Day and encouraged people to seek out the many events taking place.



District 10 – Councillor Roberts attended the recent Annual General Meeting of the Village of Lawrencetown. Two internet towers are installed and they hope to have them operational before the other two are put up. She recognized the successful volunteer efforts of the village commission.
