"Public works professionals play such an important role in our everyday lives. They create physical connections by building and maintaining roads, sidewalks and bridges, and they create social ones by bringing people together to plant trees, looking after our beautiful parks where people gather and play, and helping children cross busy streets to get to school. This annual event is a way for us to thank the people who work tirelessly to keep Brampton moving."
