The Chair of the Peninsula Harbour Commmunity Liaison Committee, Dr. Sarah Newberry, has been honoured by the College of Family Physicians of Canada as Ontario “Family Physician of the Year.” The award recongnizes her “outstanding patient care.” Dr. Newberry is also very active in her home community of Marathon, Ontario. The Chronicle-Journal article above notes her involvement in the Peninsula Harbour Community Liaison Committee (CLC), which she has chaired for several years. The CLC has acted as a two-way avenue of communication between the community and government agencies in efforts to address contaminated sediment in Peninsula Harbour. A “thin-layer” cap to address this issue was completed in 2012.
