Letter: Let's fix derelict flag pole

Dear editor:

At the corner of Front and Simcoe streets near the entrance to the Fort Mississauga pathway stands a crooked, derelict flag pole, minus the flag.

I know for a fact that it has been this way for at least the past six-plus years I have lived on this corner and I often have wondered, "Why is the pole crooked and where is the flag?"

It is on the boulevard and appears to be on publicly owned land, a few feet from a Parks Canada display about the Fort Mississauga Trail. Maybe it is the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake's flag pole or maybe it belongs to Parks Canada.

Over the past couple of years millions of dollars were spent to refurbish Fort Mississauga and with Canada Day only a few weeks away it would seem a fitting time to straighten up the flag pole and fly both our NOTL and Canadian flags in time for July 1.

C’mon NOTL, let’s fly our flags with great pride.
