WALK POSTPONED UNTIL JUNE 14th !!!!!
MAJOR PROBLEM WITH OUR “WALK TO THE STONE” AND SUPPORT OF THE PROJECT SCHEDULED FOR MAY 31st – THE WALK HAS BEEEN POSTPONED AND RESCHEDULED FOR SUNDAY, JUNE 14th !!!
Although we applied and received a permit for this event a number of months ago, we have now been informed because of “The Tour de l'Île de Montréal” which will be going through The Point, that the Police and the City will now NOT allow us to Walk on May 31st .
They will not consider that the Walk to the Stone has been taking place on the last Sunday in May for almost 150 years – they feel that the Tour should take precedence. Furthermore, the following Sunday, June 7th is the Grand Prix, and they have told us that they will not be able to provide any Police service for that day either.
So we do not seem to have any alternative at all but to move the event to June 14th – although we consider this change totally unfair.
