Supporters arranged the rally to show their appreciation for Major Smith's gargantuan effort on behalf of Niagara Citizens. Several Speakers echoed similar statements to the delight of guests.
However Smith in his low key matter of fact style preferred to thank his supporters for their constant backing throughout his years-long ordeal.
I can only say that it was heart warming to witness Major Smith's show of appreciation for everything his lovely wife has been put through and what she is still going through.
Remember folks the ordeal is not over. The Conservation Authority has right of appeal until December 27, 2017.
