Margaret Begner Remembered At Common Council

City council remembering Margaret Begner as a tour de force in the city's restaurant and hospitality industry. 

The owner of the Opera Bistro and Dufferin Inn passing away late last week at Bobby's Hospice. Mayor Mel Norton says Begner was a true renaissance woman, driven to be involved in the community. 

Begner founded such events as Chop Chop Restaurant Week and the Fundy Food Festival. She also organized the Out of the Cold men's shelter, giving meals to the homeless, and  sent meals to the hospice for patients and families for free every week.

A burial is being held tomorrow at Our Lady of Assumption Church at noon, with a reception following at the Assumption Center.
