Enjoy an unspoiled northern experience.
I talked to Murray Still yesterday and he indicated that he is talking to people at Garnet's in Espanola about a fire pump system for his cabin. It is my understanding that they quoted him a complete system for around $1,700.00 CAD ($1,500.00 if four or more systems are purchased at one time).

We just received our property assessment notice from MPAC for 2017 - 2020 with a DECREASE of 20% in our assessment. MPAC's website indicates a similar decrease for McGregor Bay properties generally.
