Windsor, ON – Windsor’s giant Canadian flag at the riverfront has suffered some wear and tear in it’s first two months in place and as a result some repairs are needed. The city is now looking for a qualified seamstress with a really long ladder to assist with upkeep on the flag.
City Councilman Frank Edwards noted that there is a maintenance trust in place of $100,000 but he thinks having a seamstress with a ladder standing by will be necessary to maintain the appearance of the flag. “I’m sure there are a lot of qualified people in Windsor who can do the repairs the problem is finding one with a really long ladder” said Edwards.
The flag is part Great Canadian Flag Project and has been in place since May of this year. Edwards noted that the city has already received a four-foot-long needle and thread kit from the Great Canadian Sewing Project so they can proceed with repairs on the flag as necessary.
