The Special Committee of the Whole meeting for the purposes of discussing the “A Path Forward” exhibit including the “Holding Court” statue of Sir John A. Macdonald has been moved to April 27 at 6pm.
The municipality has opted to move the meeting to allow staff more time to review and integrate the latest round of feedback with the proposed partners. This additional time will also allow the municipality to broker discussions between all potential partner organizations and continue local consultations that would include meeting with members of the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte.
The proposed exhibit would include the “Holding Court” sculpture of Sir John A. Macdonald as part of a permanent exhibit at Macaulay Church, developed in partnership with the Tsi Tyónnheht Onkwawén:na (TTO) Language and Cultural Centre and the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund. Details of the proposal can be found on The County’s Have Your Say engagement site.
The public continues to have the opportunity to offer feedback on the plan through Have Your Say. Comments are welcome until Monday, April 18. Staff have updated the site with answers to frequently asked questions that have been posed by the public.
