The City of Timmins is honouring three more exceptional community members with Heart of Gold Civic Awards. At Tuesday night’s City Council meeting, Steve Meunier and Douglas Nicholls were acknowledged for their commitment to their community through volunteering, and multidisciplinary artist Stéphanie Morin-Robert was recognized earlier this month at the performance of her critically acclaimed play, “Blindside /Angle Mort” at Centre Culturel La Ronde.

Morin-Robert was nominated by Conseil scolaire catholique des Grandes Rivières as a former student of École Secondaire Catholique Thériault, who has distinguished herself in the world of national and international arts. Her one-woman show recounts Morin-Robert’s younger years as a cancer survivor, and the importance of resiliency and self-acceptance. By performing her award-winning show in French, Morin-Robert continues to support and strengthen Francophone culture and language.

Steve Meunier was nominated by the McIntyre Curling Club Board of Directors for his tireless effort to support the sport of curling as a player, trainer, coach, volunteer board member, and now president of the McIntyre Curling Club. His love of curling frequently takes him outside of Timmins, serving as a coach/trainer and former councillor for the Ontario Curling Council and Chair of the 2010 Canadian Police Curling Nationals. His participation in bringing the 2023 Canadian U18 Curling Championships to Timmins has set the standard for sports tourism events in the city. Meunier’s commitment as a volunteer extends beyond the curling ice. Local organizations like the MADD Timmins Chapter and the Canadian Cancer Society / Cops for Cancer have benefited from his experience, and he is a dedicated volunteer firefighter with the Whitney Fire Department.

And finally, Douglas Nicholls was nominated for his over 30 years of volunteer service with the Connaught and District Historical Society, which also celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2023. As a director, he was instrumental in fundraising for the Connaught & District Pioneer Museum’s original construction, and continues to help operate the museum. His history of volunteering for the community began in the early nineties, and included fundraising with the Connaught Community Association for a new community centre, which remains a place of pride for residents on the shores of Frederick House Lake.

Recipients of the Heart of Gold Recognition Program are recognized once a month during a regular meeting of council. Residents are encouraged to nominate someone they know who has made a positive impact on the community or achieved outstanding accomplishment in the following categories:
• Volunteer and Community Service
• Youth Community and Civic Engagement
• Achievement in Sports
• Achievement in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics)

Plans for the replacement of the Porcupine River Bridge on Fredrick House Lake Road were finalized by council on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, with approval of the construction contract awarded to Looby Builders Ltd.

The original reinforced concrete bridge will be replaced with a two-lane concrete and steel structure at an estimated cost of $5,074,739 + HST. The cost was approved as part of the City’s capital budget for 2024.

Porcupine River Bridge replacement was prioritized by Council after safety concerns shut down the bridge in November 2021. Since then, the City has streamlined design work and necessary approvals to award the final construction contract early in the year to facilitate ordering of structural steel and materials.

Contractors will begin to stage the work site on Monday, March 4, 2024. The estimated completion date of construction is November 2024.

Reduced load restrictions for commercial motor vehicles and trailers will come into effect on Monday, March 4, 2024 on specific highways and streets within the City of Timmins. By-law 2006-6275 governs load restrictions to protect our roads and highways during the spring thaw, when damage is most likely to happen. By-law 2006-6275 also provides a list of the applicable roads under Schedule A.

The City’s Public Works Dept. is now using the Ministry of Transportation’s Reduced Load Period (RLP) Table to determine the timing of reduced load restrictions. The table uses frost depth, moisture, and daily air temperatures to indicate when reduced load restrictions should be put in place and when they can be lifted. This ensures that the City’s road infrastructure is protected, while supporting the trucking and haulage industry by removed reduced load restrictions when appropriate.

Roads with reduced loads in effect will have signage posted. Learn more about the how the City is working to maintain our roads online at https://www.timmins.ca/our_services/roads_and_infrastructure.

The flags at all municipal facilities have been lowered on Friday, March 1, 2024, to honour the death of Canada’s 18th prime minister, Brian Mulroney. He was 84.

“We remember a leader and statesman, one of Canada’s most prominent political figures, whose decisions as prime minister continue to have profound impact on our country,” says Mayor Michelle Boileau. “Mulroney was a visionary who believed that Canada could lead on climate change, reform trade, strengthen global relations, and champion human rights, at the time against apartheid in South Africa.

“The world will look back on his legacy over the coming days, on his commitment to public office, and the tough decisions he made to lead Canada forward. On behalf of the City of Timmins, I offer sincere condolences to the Mulroney family at this difficult time.” ~ Mayor Michelle Boileau

Flags will remain at half-mast until sunset on the day of the memorial service.
