Cornwall Ontario – The Service Club Council of Cornwall and the District is getting involved in the No Tanks issue. The club which represents such groups as The Knights of Columbus, The Kinsmen & Kinettes, Catholic Women’s League, Royal Canadian Legion, Cornwall Lions club, Cornwall Optimist club, RCAF Wing, Cornwall Rotary & Rotary Sunrise, Garde Nativite, and Lancaster Optimist Club all; like almost all of the rest of the city; don’t want tanks.
Now if we can get those groups to sign our petition below and show up at our next rally to help make sure that our voices are heard together and if we can all work together maybe, just maybe, we can ensure that there are NO TANKS on our waterfront!
Btw, we’d be happy to steer the Service Club Council to another batch of our NO TANKS pins pictured below for their members to wear!
