I would like to thank everyone who came out to the Community BBQ and Fundraising Event held on Sept. 17th.  It is wonderful to see how the Ward 3 community has pulled together to assist the resident affected by the events of June 28th.

Thank you to MP Peter Fonseca for providing the hamburgers, cookies and volunteers, without his assistance this BBQ would not have been able to happen. Thank you to Marc Borg of Marc's No Frills at 925 Rathburn Rd. E for his donation and assistance with the food as well.  Thank you to Mark Rossi of Burnhamthorpe Fruit Market for his donation of Apples and thank you to East Side Mario's at 1488 Dundas St. E. for their donation of Pizza.
