Deputy Premier and Minister the Hon. Paul Robichaud stopped by the Blackville Outdoor Rink Facility recently to meet Rec. Council President Ian Fortune, newly elected Mayor Hal Muck and Councilor Matt Sturgeon, and to visualize the investment made in partnership with the Municipal Council.
The Minister supported me and the community in securing $44,400 of RDC funding to go toward the plan to provide a serious upgrade to the rink building. It was ironic that we stopped in Blackville to view an investment in the Blackville Rink while on our way to announce major funding to the Renous Arena, and it was just last summer that an announcement in Doaktown was made that would provide upgrades to the Doaktown Arena.
It’s a proud moment to have played a significant role in helping the communities of Doaktown, Blackville and Renous in providing much needed upgrades to three of our most important recreational facilities in Southwest Miramichi. Thank you to those of you who worked so hard to see all of these projects become a reality,
