Mr. Speaker, the Georgian Bay '94 Marine Heritage Festival is a co-operative initiative that will involve 61 shoreline municipalities along Georgian Bay and the north channel.
More than 100 community and family oriented events will take place between June 1 and September 30. These activities will include cultural celebrations, heritage re-enactments, interpretive and educational environmental events, on the water competitions including the International Atlantic Challenge and the tall ships visits to the communities all along the bay.
I congratulate the organizers of the Georgian Bay '94 Marine Heritage Festival for their initiative in promoting this unique part of Canada. I encourage all Canadians to take part in this historic event.
