Letter: An outpouring of support for trail
Rick Meloen, who chairs the heritage trail committee, is thankful for the public response to the town's decision to offer Solmar an easement on the heritage trail. EVAN LOREE

Dear editor:

I was pleasantly surprised by the outpouring of support for the Upper Canada Heritage Trail these past few weeks.

Since 2017, the heritage trail committee, along with many volunteers, has spent a great deal of time and effort securing funding, organizing events, raising awareness of the trail and seeing the project come to fruition.

So the committee was appalled to find that the completed trail at Charlotte Street was in danger of being compromised.

Thank you to all who have contributed and supported the trail and who hopefully will continue to do so.

Construction on phase 2 has started, but there is still eight kilometres to go. Stay tuned for updates about the trail.
