Petition to have fallen war hero honored on downtown banners
A petition to honour a fallen Niagara solider through a banner program downtown.
Dennis Brown, who was killed in Afghanistan back in 2009, was set to be honoured on a banner in downtown St. Catharines
Others included in the banner program include Harriet Tubman and Ron Sexsmith.
Brown's sons had nominated their father to be honoured on a banner, but his widow vetoed the idea saying Brown wouldn't want that.
That prompted Ghislaine Clouthier to start a petition on titled "St Catharines Downtown Association: Please raise the banner for Dennis Brown!"
Her goal is to get 300 signatures, 100 for each of Brown's sons.

The St. Catharines Downtown Association has said it doesn't want to get in the middle of a family dispute.
