Many community-based organizations and other levels of government are currently working with Fisheries and Oceans Canada to take over responsibility for the care and protection of many more lighthouses that are important to their communities. </p> <p> Quotes </p> <p> &ldquo;The Long Eddy Point Lighthouse is a treasured symbol of our community. Its heritage lighthouse designation will ensure that its unique tower and fog alarm building will be protected for generations to come. I am proud to recognize the designation of this rare surviving example of an aid to navigation station necessitated by the stormy weather of the Bay of Fundy. Its designation will allow our community and tourists alike to continue to appreciate it for its history, scenic views, and popular whale and bird-watching site.&rdquo; </p> <p> Karen Ludwig<br /> Member of Parliament for New Brunswick Southwest </p> <p> <br /> &ldquo;The Inch Arran Point Front Range Lighthouse has been in our community for decades and I am delighted with the fact that it is now designated a national heritage lighthouse. This lighthouse played an important role in the development of Dalhousie, a town that has historically relied on the sea to connect it to the rest of Canada. I am happy that our community will continue to protect an important piece of Canada&rsquo;s cultural maritime heritage.&rdquo; </p> <p> Ren&eacute; Arseneault<br /> Member of Parliament for Madawaska-Restigouche </p> Inch Arran Lighthouse Mon, 13 Feb 2017 14:18:15 +0000 Marlene 1740 at http://www.dalhousie.ca Flags will be flown at half-mast until further notice to mark the tragic events that took place in the city of Qu├ębec on January 29, 2017. http://www.dalhousie.ca/news/2017-01-31/flags-will-be-flown-half-mast-until-further-notice-mark-tragic-events-took-place-cit Tue, 31 Jan 2017 17:34:24 +0000 Marlene 1737 at http://www.dalhousie.ca Fundraiser for affected families in the Acadian Peninsula http://www.dalhousie.ca/news/2017-01-30/fundraiser-affected-families-acadian-peninsula <p> (Balmoral, Charlo, Eel River Crossing and Dalhousie, NB) &ndash; The Restigouche-East municipalities (Balmoral, Charlo, Eel River Crossing and Dalhousie) are currently collecting donations to help victims of the Acadian Peninsula, especially those on Lam&egrave;que Island, since the Restigouche-West municipalities are currently focusing on the greater Tracadie-Sheila area.
