SYD­NEY – A com­mem­o­ra­tive plaque will be un­veiled to­day at the Melt­ing Pot Mon­u­ment in Whit­ney Pier at 2 p.m. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Parks Canada, the His­toric Sites and Mon­u­ments Board of Canada, and the Whit­ney Pier His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety will be on hand. The cer­e­mony marks the na­tional his­toric sig­nif­i­cance of the devel­op­ment of Whit­ney Pier, once con­sid­ered to be the most eth­ni­cally di­verse com­mu­nity east of Mon­treal. The Melt­ing Pot Mon­u­ment is ad­ja­cent to the old fire hall on Vic­to­ria Road near Neville Park.
