News Update

September 23

1. The problem with comments clashing with a Joomla update has NOT been resolved although comments have now been re-activated.  Stay tuned for some major changes to this site over the next several months.  The intent is to continue with comments although there may be loss of comments older than a few months.  The momentary downtimes required for troubleshooting will now cease.  More on future changes here.

2. Ontario Street in Hamilton Township has been selected for the six bed Hospice in West Northumberland pending approval of its zoning application and a public community consent process this fall. The building team collaborated to research over 40 potential sites before concluding their rigourous selection process from a shortlist of five.  More here.

At the last Council Meeting, Council agreed to fly the Gay Pride Flag at Victoria Hall during the month of June. So today (June 23), there was a ceremonial implementation of that. The Police were represented although they had flown the flag earlier in the month.   Also represented were the Mayor Gil Brocanier, Deputy Mayor John Henderson and Councillor Suzanne Séguin as well as some staff and a few members of the Public. The initiative was led by DBIA Chair Adam Bureau and was supported by Ashley Bouman, President of PFLAG and Vice Chair of Northumberland Pride. A Pride event was to have taken place nearby on Second Street but weather forced a last minute venue change to the CCI. (There was a small sign on Second street redirecting people).

In his speech, Gil said that flying the flag was a symbol of Cobourg’s commitment. The Police had already shown their commitment and, for the event, had Pride logos on their uniform (see photo below).

When Ashley spoke, she mentioned several events. As well as the PFLAG event at the high school on Friday, there have also been events at the LOFT finishing on Sunday.

And last but not least, although road closures have not been approved and will not be happening, there will be a Gay Pride March of sorts along King Street on Saturday June 24. It starts at Victoria Hall at 12:00 (gather starting at 11:30am) and is being organized by PFLAG (which is Parents Family and Friends of Gays – Facebook Page). It will simply proceed along the sidewalks.

Below are photos of the event.
