Bob Young wants to turn the road to Algonquin Park into a memorial.

The Lake of Bays Mayor is proposing to change the section of Highway 60 between the township and Algonquin Park to Tom Thomson Parkway.

He says the timing is perfect to symbolize the connection with the famous Canadian artist.

Young says Thomson is responsible for bringing together the landscape artists who would eventually create the Group of Seven after his death.

He says if the MTO gets on board he’d like to see unique signage used on the road that would connect to Thomson’s art.
