CANADA’S ECONOMIC ACTION PLAN SUPPORTS NEW INVERNESS BALL FIELD

INVERNESS (NS) – September 17, 2010 – Thanks to Canada’s Economic Action Plan, Inverness has a new ball field which has been renamed in memory of the late Ned MacDonald, a long-time municipal councillor in Inverness County. The official opening and dedication ceremony was held today.  

“Canada’s Economic Action Plan is ensuring residents of communities like Inverness benefit from stimulus funds for improved recreational facilities,” said the Honourable Keith Ashfield, Minister of National Revenue, Minister of the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and Minister for the Atlantic Gateway. “Our government’s investment of $140,000 in the renewed Inverness Ball Field has helped generate additional local economic activity and gives residents a better facility in which to play, relax and build community life.”

The newly completed Ned MacDonald Memorial Ball Field includes the new dugouts, washrooms, change rooms, fencing and lighting. The Government of Canada, through Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation has contributed $140,000 toward the project under the Recreational Infrastructure Canada Program (RInC).  To date, $2.9 million in RInC investments have been announced for 41 projects across Cape Breton Island.

“Baseball and softball have always been popular in Inverness and the former ball field was well used by the community,” said Leslie MacKinnon, President of the Inverness Regional Minor Ball Association. “This financial support from the Government of Canada has enabled us to provide the people of the Inverness area with a modern ball field that will serve the community well in to the future.”

Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation offers programs in support of economic development initiatives and is responsible for delivering ACOA’s programs on Cape Breton Island and in the Mulgrave area.
