Jail li­a­bil­i­ties too spooky

The Sun Times (Owen Sound) - - NEWS -

The Spooky Bruce event at the Walk­er­ton Jail has been can­celled due to cost as­sess­ments and li­a­bil­ity con­cerns. The Bruce 150 com­mit­tee made the de­ci­sion to can­cel the event, which was sched­uled for Oct. 27-29. “The lo­gis­tics of mov­ing pa­trons through the jail in a safe man­ner was of ut­most con­cern,” the group said in a news re­lease. “Walk­er­ton Jail is a build­ing de­signed to keep peo­ple in. Con­sid­er­ing that, the lay­out of the build­ing and its small en­try­ways cre­ated safety con­cerns and ac­ces­si­bil­ity is­sues.” The com­mit­tee had sev­eral meet­ings to dis­cuss risk mit­i­ga­tion, but made the dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion to can­cel the Hal­loween ad­ven­ture, and fo­cus ef­forts on other up­com­ing projects the news re­lease said. Up­com­ing events include the Bruce 150 art re­veal at the Bruce County Mu­seum and Cul­tural Cen­tre on Sept. 27 and the Bruce 150 time cap­sule ded­i­ca­tion in De­cem­ber. The Bruce County Out­reach trailer can also be vis­ited at var­i­ous lo­ca­tions, listed at www.bruce­county150.ca.
