A Tree to Honour Canada’s 150th (and Burnaby’s 125th!)

The City of Burnaby is one of 50 communities across Canada to be awarded $25,000 by the Canadian National Railway Company (CN) to fund local tree-planting projects in honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary.  As part of this celebration a ceremonial maple tree will be planted at City Hall Boulevard (corner of Canada Way and Deer Lake Parkway) on May 7 at 10:15 am to usher in Canada’s 150th and Burnaby’s 125th birthdays.
