Members of the Sudbury Burundian Community, Athanase Simbagoye and François Nzotungwanimana, present a cheque for $1,200 to Mayor Brian Bigger and Bridge of Nations Committee co-chairs, Ursula Sauvé and Dan Lee. The money will be held in trust by the City of Greater Sudbury to reserve a spot on the bridge for the Burundian flag for the third and final phase of the Bridge of Nations. For phase 3, the City is looking at adding an additional 10-18 flag poles.
The committee invites representatives from other nations who would like their flag represented on the Bridge of Nations to contact the City for more information.
