HRM partners with the Province and the Canal Commission on a new dock
Councillor Barry Dalrymple was all smiles at the recent meeting of the Shubenacadie Canal Commission. He presented a cheque for the HRM portion of the cost of a new portage dock in Fall River which will become a much needed improvement for paddlers wanting to get from Lake Thomas into Lake Fletcher. The portage is the only way around the old lock. Provincial funding was also received for the project and Commissisoners at the Canal hope that the government will continue to support the improvements in the area of the historic "Fletchers Lock".
