Please note that the Hope and Healing Canada installation by Hamilton-based Métis artist Tracey-Mae Chambers will be postponed due to inclement weather. 

Heavy rain and strong gusts of wind are expected all day today (Dec 6th) and would make for unsafe and unpleasant installation conditions. 🥶🌬🌧

We will keep you posted as soon as we have a suitable back-up date. We look forward to welcoming Tracey-Mae Encaustic Sculptor] to Port Hope soon!

I'm sorry the weather is not cooperating. This kind of work takes spiritual energy as well as creative energy and talent. I hope you get a beautiful day very soon

Hopefuly at a later date, all the trails along the river could have signage with local first nation language put up. Maybe a brief history on a sign/plaque installed also.
