First time I ever took a boat ride to visit a “facility” to discuss infrastructure funding. Skipper was Tyler Germani. We did indeed provide funding assistance to support the Baddeck Lions Club. Great organization – good people doing good work in Victoria County but for the good of all Cape Breton and beyond” – Larry Maxwell, Regional Representative Cape Breton, Communities, Sport & Recreation Division, Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage (Nov. 18, 2016)
