Lifelong local resident, retired businessman and philanthropist George Galbraith is celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday with a two pronged donation towards trail development. “In honour of my parents and grandparents, I am making an initial $150,000 donation”, said George.
“I will also match donations, up to $150,000, made from today until June 30th. I want to see the trail developed so that it is safe and enduring, and finished soon so I can enjoy biking the trail with my grandchildren.”
