Thanks to Jim Hurlburt, our CF 100 Shines Once Again!

A great big THANK YOU to Jim Hurlburt & Sons Restoration in Barrie and to PPG Canada. When the CF 100 was completely restored two years ago, PPG donated all the paints, including the clearcoat.
Residents may have noticed that the upper surfaces of the plane began to get cloudy this past few months.

Jim Hurlburt, as is his habit, periodically drives around and checks his projects. He noticed the the clouding which we wouldn’t have noticed over the winter.

Goreway Bridge Under Construction

After years of promises, multiple delays and a fair share of mysetery, a Contract is being awarded in the amount of over $40 million to finally build the Goreway Bridge. Delays have driven the costs up by $19 million. The Brampton City staff are the lead on this project.

Goreway over the CN tracks will be closed for 12-15 months for construction, eliminating the need for track rerouting and detour construction which would add $9.5m to the costs and 26 months to the project.
