Abstract (Document Summary)

"I can't see any reason not to designate the tree," said Ward 2 Councillor Joan Robson, the representative for the area. "It's taken root and is a part of community, and I think we need to continue to care for that tree. It's has some significance in our history."

"It's such a touching story and one we should really celebrate," said Ward 3 Councillor Moya Johnson. "Someone should take it upon themselves to collect those acorns every year ... I think it would be great to have even more trees just in case something happens to this tree."

Town council is hoping to get the tree, located beside the former Speyside School on Regional Rd. 25, a heritage designation.
