2.0 COMPONENTS – OBSERVATION AND RECOMMENDED ACTIONS1. Awareness PanelDescription:
cast aluminum plaque with grey enamel, approx 700mm X 1090mm,mounted to a granite slab supported by a concrete base.
Observation:
 As
 
noted in 2005, the redcolour on the flags on the AwarenessPanel is wearing away and the greybackground paint has chipped in a fewplaces but the sign is still quite legible.
 
Recommended Action:Low priority:
Touch up the flag withmatching and adequate paint (asrecommended by manufacturer).
Observation:
There is some rustingaround the bottom of the oval photographof Laurier which is probably caused by thefailure of the seal around the bottom of thepicture. The picture itself is in goodcondition.
 
Recommended Action:Low priority:
Treat against rust, paint thesurface, and reseal the picture frame tothe panel.
