Pierrefonds-Roxboro’s Canada Day Parade Cancelled

Our forecasted heat wave is being cited as the reason for the cancellation of Pierrefonds-Roxboro’s Canada Day Parade.

Borough mayor Jim Beis, said in a statement that “This decision was made as a precautionary measure for the health and safety of participants, spectators and employees”.

Temperatures in the high 30’s are expected this Sunday with humidex values pushing that to the mid 40’s.

Mayor Beis said that the 4 km route which takes about two hours on foot, would have been too intense and even dangerous under the circumstances.
