Township of Otonabee—South Monaghan approves land recognition for council meetings – Peterborough Examiner

Nov. 24, 2021

Mayor Joe Taylor said he researched a number of land acknowledgments before making the recommendation to council, which was unanimously accepted at Monday’s regular meeting.

“I wanted one that was unique to Otonabee South-Monaghan,” he said. “I didn’t want it to be the same generic that we often hear.
