Canada Day in Timmins

Canada Day was a busy one in Timmins with plenty to do. There was the annual flag walk from city hall to the Schumacher Flag Park lead by 'Mr. Canada' Karl Habla. There was a Canada Day party at the Shania Twain Centre, where hundreds of residents enjoyed pancakes, birthday cake and the chance to dress up for Canada,like these three cuties. The other big event of the day was the unveiling of the the Porcupine Miners Memorial at the McIntyre Park, a tribute to all the miners who have lost their lives on the job in Timmins over the years and a continuing tribute to those who work in the local mining industry.
