Veteran’s Park about to get a little more crowded

Published on

The old cannon in Canatara Park known as “Big Tom” has been approved for relocation to the park behind the Sarnia Library, possibly in time for Remembrance Day.

And a light armoured vehicle, known as a LAV III, will be installed on a concrete pad in the park as a war memorial to Canadians lost during the Afghanistan Mission.

It’s expected the LAVIII memorial could be in place by the spring of 2016.

Two Sarnia-Lambton men, Pte. William Cushley and Cpl. Brent Poland, died during the mission.
