A clarification sought on arena funding

Not all things Central are in Mindemoya

To the Expositor:

Hello from a subscriber in Manitouwadge!

Re: the November 16 front page article by Alicia McCutcheon on federal funding. The final paragraph mentions funds to Central Manitoulin for arena upgrades. Which arena?

As former president of the Central Manitoulin Lions Club (2008), I recall trying so desperately to ensure that all three wards were recognized after the amalgamation…maintaining their identities and remembering that not all things “Central” pertained to only Mindemoya.

If you can, please make a clarification, with apologies to the fine folks in Providence Bay.

Thank you,

EDITOR’S NOTE:  The funding is for the J.H. Burt Memorial Arena. Central Manitoulin is the only Island municipality with two arenas in its care.
