In response to community concerns and increased issues along highway 6 on the Bruce Peninsula, the Bruce Peninsula Safe Communities Committee is holding a public meeting to bring stakeholders together to report back on the work of the Safe Communities Committee as well as local initiatives to improve highway 6 safety.
There will be presentations from local organizations followed by a question and answer session from the public.
In the spring of 2014, volunteer members who reside in the Town of South Bruce Peninsula came together under the umbrella of Parachute Canada. The goal was to earn the Town of South Bruce Peninsula the designation of being a “Safe Community.” In the fall of 2016 the committee expanded with members from Northern Bruce Peninsula; hence changing the name from the South Bruce Peninsula Safe Communities Committee to the Bruce Peninsula Safe Communities Committee (BPSCC).
Parachute Canada aims toward preventing serious injuries from children to seniors through education and programs. “Preventable injuries kill more Canadian children than any other single disease, and more youth than all other cause combined. Each year in Canada, preventable injuries cause: 16, 000 deaths, 60, 000 disabilities, 3.5 million emergency room visits, $27 billion economic burden to the Canadian economy and worst of all, 1 child dies every 9 hours, “ statistics from Parachute Canada.
For more information on the meeting please contact Terry Bell chair at firstname.lastname@example.org or the United Way at 519-376-1560 or email@example.com (The United Way serves as the Secretary of the SCC)
