STATEMENT – JOHN CUNNINGHAM, DEPUTY WARDEN MUNICPALITY OF THE DISTRICT OF YARMOUTH
We anticipate sharing an update to our residents on contingency plans in the coming weeks. Among our key stakeholders in the Mariners centre expansion project are the provincial and federal governments. We have benefitted from their ongoing project feedback and guidance to move us closer to breaking ground. The expansion has been received positively by all those we have briefed however, like so many things there have been delays due to Covid-19. As we get back on track it is important also to recognize Minister Zach Churchill and Minister Leo Glavine for their integral support.
In keeping with MODY’s focus on teamwork we are pleased also to share that we are participating in “Yargyle 2024” which will see our region play a part in the Congrès mondial acadien, an international gathering of Acadian culture. As chair of Yargyle 2024 I will continue to share updates on the event that we know will draw global attention and visitors from near and far to our region.
While we have endured an extremely challenging time these past few months, we know our community is and always will be stronger together. I look forward to sharing more on these exciting developments with you, our proud residents of MODY.
