Phil Bannon
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners, Town of Whitchurch Stouffville staff, LSRCA staff and residents of the community who partnered with us to make this a reality. This has been a long journey (4 years) between the time I first met with Brian Kemp (LSRCA) and proposed the development of a lake management program for Musselman’s Lake. We should all be proud of what we have accomplished. I would like to thank the Musselman’s Lake Residents Association for their continued support throughout this process. Over the long term, the success of this program will be measured by the level of participation of the residents in the community”……Councillor Phil Bannon.
