Ontario Family Makes Donation to Northern CB Community
An Ontario family has donated a case of emergency supplies to the community of Dingwall, in northern Cape Breton, in honour of a well-known scuba diver who died in the area just over a year ago. 41 year-old Craig Lowe, of Mississauga, was a painter by trade and a frequent guest on the television home repair show Holmes on Homes. Lowe died in a scuba diving accident near St. Paul Island, in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, on August 2nd of last year. Some of his family members were at St. Paul Island Lighthouse and Museum yesterday, when they donated a set of emergency supplies as a gesture of gratitude to the community, which they say was tremendously supportive after Lowe’s death. The family says they plan to continue visiting the community. Lowe’s father, Don Lowe, says that the donation will help local rescuers with the provision of equipment that was lacking in the area. The accident was investigated by the RCMP, who found that Lowe accidentally drowned because of a minor malfunction in his scuba diving gear.
