The Municipality of the District of Lunenburg (or MODL) celebrated their Blue Community achievement at the beginning of the Council meeting Tuesday night, and received their official certificate in the presence of many South Shore chapter members.
The Council of Canadians has been encouraging municipalities and other groupings across the country – and around the world – to become blue communities.
In a Council meeting this morning, the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg on Nova Scotia's beautiful South Shore became Atlantic Canada's first Blue Community! The South Shore chapter was key in supporting the Council with more information etc., so a big congratulations to both the Municipality as well as the chapter for all of their work.
