Local labour and companies used to build Cobourg Community Centre

Thank God for the BurdReport, written by local activist and former politician Ben Burd. In his wonderful way, he stayed on top of this issue like a Hound Dog on a scent. The federal and provincial government touted these infrastructure programs as being important to economic stimulus, yet there is always a question of where the dollars get spent.
