Boot Drive on Saturday

Fill yer boots! Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus and communications director Dale Tonelli were among the first to make donations to the annual Muscular Dystrophy campaign, which firefighters across Canada have been promoting for decades. The donations were accepted by Timmins Professional Firefighter Association president Peter Osterberg. The firefighters will conduct a “boot drive” in several areas of the city on Saturday where residents can make a donation in support of medical research and Muscular Dystrophy Canada. Timmins Professional Firefighters and 600 other fire departments and associations across Canada have raised more than $61 million since the boot drive campaigns began in 1954. Firefighters will be on location at McDonald’s, Your Independent Grocers, A&P Superfresh, Wal Mart and Canadian Tire beginning at 9:00 a.m. Saturday to collect donations.
