Memorial Plaque at Cobourg Street

Plaque Small
Unfortunately, the plaque honouring the memory of the Great Storm includes a number of errors. These include the reference to the length of the Wexford, the number of casualties in total, and its reference to the total number of ships missing or lost on Lake Huron. A replacement for the plaque could cost up to $5,000. The Ontario Heritage Trust, the group responsible for such plaques in this era, already has a list of 135 plaques in Ontario that require repair or replacement. In these tight budgetary times, the necessary funds are just not available. Perhaps, as part of our effort, we might find a way to raise the necessary funds to support the corrections required for this plaque, so that it might communicate a more correct version of our Great Storm history for the next 100 years.
