BEAUBASSIN EAST (GNB) – The provincial government is investing $105,000 in an infrastructure improvement project in the rural community of Beaubassin East to commemorate Canada’s 150th anniversary.
“We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful province of breathtaking landscapes, where we rejoice in its cultural diversity and welcoming spirit,” said Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Bill Fraser, who is also minister responsible for the Regional Development Corporation. “Our investment in this project will enrich the rural community of Beaubassin East while marking our nation’s 150th anniversary.”
The project involves infrastructure improvements in the community.
“We are very grateful for this contribution from the provincial government and to be part of the commemoration of Canada’s 150th anniversary,” said Beaubassin East Mayor Ronnie Duguay. “With the new modern sign at the municipal building, we will be able to better inform our residents of the municipal and community events.
Funding is being provided under the Program for Municipal Development to Commemorate Canada’s 150th anniversary. Last January, municipalities with populations of more than 4,000 and less than 25,000 were eligible to apply for funding of up to $150,000 for beautification projects to contribute to a vibrant and attractive downtown and to commemorate Canada’s 150th anniversary.
