In view of a number of incidents that occurred last year at our Mattamy Homes Canada Day in Barrhaven we have had to incorporate a number of security measures to ensure the safety of everyone attending this wonderful family event celebrating the birthday of this great country.
After a number of security meetings with police and private security it has been decided that commencing this year, we will be putting a fence around our event and require everyone attending to go through one of the two entrances and submit to a bag check. You will also notice a substantial increase in security personnel.
It has always been the intent of the volunteers that run Canada Day in Barrhaven to provide a fun, safe and alcohol-free environment to celebrate Canada’s Birthday, however due to a few bad apples these new, very costly, security measures are the new reality. We would like to ask everyone that wants to see this event continue in our community to help support the costs of these upgrades even if it’s just a five-dollar donation. You can donate on our Go Fund Me page. https://www.gofundme.com/canada-day-in-barrhaven
