Town council denies walkway and dock in Brome Lake
For more than a decade an organization in the Eastern Townships has offered summer camps and sporting activities to people with physical disabilities and reduced mobility. In more recent years, the program has been based on Lake Massawippi.
That's where the Adaptive Sports Foundation set up a special dock adapted for wheelchair users -to ease them into the water; to help them onto boats, or into adapted water skis.
But when the organization made a request to move that summer camp to Douglas Beach on Brome Lake -to be closer to many of the program's Montreal-based clients- the town council denied that request, leaving many involved with the program upset.
Our Sarah Rogers was in Brome Lake yesterday to find out more.
