Mayor and Town Councillors;
I thank the Council for their illumination of the fact that private individuals or private organizations providing sufficient money can purchase the naming rights of public property in perpetuity.
I don`t have the power of money to make a similar purchase to have the arboretum located on Elgin Street, east of Burnham, which currently exists without an attached honourific, to be named Susanna Moodie Arboretum.
Attached is a three page synopsis [below] of Susanna Moodie and her significance. There are valuable hyper-links in the text which can be accessed if this letter is read on-line, or off-site, it can be accessed at cobourgtown.blogspot.com
I appeal to Cobourg Town Council to name the arboretum on Elgin Street: Susanna Moodie Arboretum.
