Brockville – The United Counties of Leeds & Grenville Council has passed a resolution to contribute $2,000 to a GoFundMe campaign in memory of the late Gord Brown, Member of Parliament for Leeds-Grenville – 1000 Islands and Rideau Lakes.
The ‘Help Gord Brown’s Gan Ice Pad Vision’ campaign has reached more than $36,000 with a goal of $100,000. The campaign was launched following Mr. Brown’s death on May 2nd. At that time, Mr. Brown’s family asked that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the fund.
Mr. Brown, who grew up in Gananoque, helped found the not-for-profit Thousand Islands Accommodation Partners (TIAP). Last July, the partnership announced it would take part in a community enhancement project and determined it would follow Mr. Brown’s suggestion to build an outdoor refrigerated ice pad in Gananoque.
The surface will be now be named in his memory.
