Sables-Spanish Rivers Township council renames arena

By Rosalind Russell – Sables-Spanish Rivers Township council has agreed to rename the Massey Area Arena in memory of a past mayor.

Councillor Mike Mercieca proposed the arena be renamed in honour of the late Maurice Cazabon who was the mayor of the Town of Massey long before amalgamation as a township, serving in the role through the 1970s and 80s.

He says as mayor, Cazabon championed the building of the town arena, which still exists today.

Cazabon was also active on the former school board, several church committees, coached hockey, and especially enjoyed being a long-time Boy Scout leader.

Cazabon died last July in Ottawa where he spent most of his retirement.

He was 89.
