Happy Canada Day Weekend

Happy Canada Day Northumberland – Peterborough South!


The summer months are filled with sunshine, laughter and long days spent with family and friends. I enjoy the sunny summer weekends, connecting with family and friends, out at events in our community, hiking with my dog Max and meeting with many of you.

This is my first summer as an MPP. I enjoy the opportunity to engage with you all at local events, meetings, BBQ’s and concerts. Our community shines in the summer, our beaches are busy, patios full, and our local businesses are open. We are at our very best; especially this weekend!

I am thrilled to get to spend Canada Day weekend with you all. With so many great events taking place across our riding, I thought I would let you all know where I will be. I’ll be starting my day in Brighton at the Kin Club Pancake Breakfast volunteering. I never pass up an opportunity to spend some time in the sun. You can find me at the Port Hope and Hastings Canada Day parades. I will also be attending Opening Ceremonies in Cobourg and Norwood to help kick off their festivities.

If you will be celebrating Canada Day outside of our riding, I hope you will take advantage of the many Canada Day celebrations across the province. Our government is offering free admission to the first 500 visitors at 10 Ontario agencies and attractions across the province. We want to ensure that as many Ontarians as possible are provided with the opportunity to celebrate Canada Day with their families and friends. If you are in the area of any of the following events, please take advantage of them.

Provincial Canada Day Celebration Locations:

  • Thunder Bay: Fort William Historical Park
  • Harbour and Sainte Marie Among the Hurons: Huronia Historical Parks
  • Vaughan: McMichael Canadian Art Collection

  • Toronto: Ontario Science Centre
  • Toronto: Cinesphere-Ontario Place

  • Burlington: Royal Botanical Gardens
  • Sudbury: Science North

Ontarians who will be sitting on their boats or docks fishing this week should take note of the Canada Day Free Fishing Week. Families are invited to make the most of the province’s week long Free Fishing event from June 29 to July 7. People of all ages can fish for free in Ontario. Please take advantage of this great initiative and get hooked on the great sport and pastime of fishing.

I look forward to seeing you all this Canada Day weekend to celebrate our beautiful country and experience Canada’s rich and vibrant culture.
