These people were marching to save the Air Base in Chatham, NB. The base employed some civilians, plus it was a boost to the economy of the Miramichi. This march took place in July, 1982. This was also on the day that Gilles Villeneuve died in a crash in the Grand Prix race. I found this photo on the site Our Miramichi Heritage Photos. We are having a big Gathering this summer to celebrate our heritage, expecting thousands to attend, locals and those that used to be locals will all be there! You can take the person out of the Miramichi, but you can't take the Miramichi out of the person!!!
