(Tiny, Ontario) The Township of Tiny is saddened to hear of the recent passing of Jack Contin, Deputy Mayor for the Town of Midland.
Mr. Contin was a Councillor for the Town of Midland prior to becoming Deputy Mayor. He also worked for Parks Canada, Environment Canada, and the Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs. Mr. Contin’s work illustrates his commitment to the environment and the community.
Mayor David Evans, on behalf of Council, expressed his sympathy for the Contin family, when saying, “On behalf of the Township of Tiny, I want to express our sincere condolences to the Contin family. The flags at the Tiny Municipal Office will remain lowered to half-mast in his honour. Mr. Contin had such a friendly, approachable, and calming demeanor with an array of interests that were deep-rooted in improving the community. Just one of the many projects he was working on was a UNESCO Geopark designation for Georgian Bay. Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and Midland colleagues during this difficult time”.
