The Advocate Podcast – Stories from Kawartha Lakes

Episode #44 Kawartha style house concerts. New neighbourhoods nearing reality. Preparing kids for their jabs. A generous land transfer near Pontypool.

December 1, 2021

Chris Schmidt says our community is defying the stats – we should NOT have as much great musical talent living here as we do. So, he’s opening up his Snug Harbour home to showcase it and plans to have others hop on this house concert wagon. Ralph McKim and Jean Garsonnin had already welcomed people to their huge Pontypool property and its beautiful trail system. But they found a way to make their generosity even more generous. Any parent will tell you there’s a big difference between a five and 12-year-old. Especially when it comes delivering the shot, as Woodville’s Dr Sheila Mae-Young explains. Building a neighbourhood means more than just puttin’ up houses and sidewalks. We sit down with Flato Developments president Shakir Rehmatullah to hear how what he’s learned from the locals will determine what he does before shovels touch ground in Kawartha Lakes.
