Ontario Premier Wynne and AWARE Simcoe and park community activists discuss Springwater Park – Camp Nibi.

A First Nations education centre, in addition to continuing with the heritage of a +90 year old, supervised park?

Wynne Morgan Stewart

As reported on the front page of today’s Springwater News (circulation 17, 300), Premier meets local community activists:

Les Stewart of the Springwater Park Citizens’ Coalition and AWARE Simcoe chair Don Morgan chatted with Premier Wynne when she recently visited Barrie. In an interview with the Barrie Examiner, Wynne said she is aware of the First Nations women’s camp at Springwater Park and does not think their idea of a native education centre at the is the park is unreasonable. “I think it’s a matter of how we would do that, where the funding would come from and it would be sustainable.”

Our brief chat happened on August 9th at the home of former Barrie MPP and MP Aileen Carroll. I reported here on Premier Wynne’s interview on the original Barrie Examiner articlepdf 

Here are a few additional pictures I took at the barbecue.
