For concerned Meaford residents about a proposed hydroelectric project at Meaford’s 4th Canadian Division Training Centre, they are asked to direct their concerns to the federal government, not Meaford’s council, as was stated at council’s September 9th meeting. Meaford CAO Rob Armstrong echoed the mayor’s comments, and said that the municipality has encouraged the DND to facilitate as much community engagement as possible. Those wishing to provide input can do so until March 31, 2020 by e-mailing Holly King, Section Head, Directorate Real Property Services, DND, at ThirdPartyAccess@forces.gc.ca with your feedback.
