The Town of Magrath was one of three groups in the Lethbridge riding that received confirmation of funding on July 29th under our federal government’s ‘Canada 150’ program. The purpose of this grant program is to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the founding of Canada in 1867. Councillor Richard Van Ee is shown addressing the guests and other recipients at the event held at the Lethbridge Public Library, together with our MP, Jim Hillyer. The Town received $100,000 from the Western Diversification Program toward the restoration of the Galt Canal Head-Gates which were developed in conjunction with the family of Sir Alexander Galt, including his son, Elliott T. Galt, and his son-in-law, Charles A. Magrath. Sir Alexander Galt was one of the most prominent founders of the Canadian federation, and his family left a lasting legacy in our community and surrounding region.
We would like to thank all those that made Magrath Days such a great success this year.
