Is Shania returning home for Canada's 150th birthday celebrations?


Is the city seeking Shania's return?

Shania Twain hasn't performed in Timmins since her homecoming show in July, 1999

By Frank Giorno | TimminsToday.com | September 12, 2016

Could Shania be coming back to Timmins to help celebrate Canada's 150th birthday?

Several sources both within the Timmins business community and close to City of Timmins administration have told Timminstoday that the city has made an offer to Shania Twain’s management to perform in Timmins in 2017 as part of the Canada 150 celebrations.

Some of the sources say that the offer has been transmitted to Shania Twain and is now in the hands of her managers.

However, Timmins Mayor Steve Black said the rumours are premature.

“Shania nor any other band has been confirmed or booked by City of Timmins at this time for Canada Day 2017,” said Mayor Steve Black when asked by Timminstoday.com. Canada Day is July 1.

“We are meeting (this) week to discuss options and what we will be doing,“ added Mayor Black.

If the word on the street proves to be true it would mark the first concert in Timmins by Shania Twain since her homecoming show in July, 1999.

The musician also returned to Timmins in December, 2010 to be part of the Olympic Torch relay on its way to the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games.

The city honoured the singer, who was born in Windsor but raised in Timmins, with a centre bearing her name and featuring many of the clothes she wore during concert performances. However, the money-losing Shania Twain Centre was purchased by Goldcorp and in December 2014 it was demolished to make way for its Hollinger Open Pit operation.

Earlier this summer Vicky D’Amours Bakery and the Coffee Warehouse on Third Avenue opened a patio containing a monument to Shania Twain erected in 1996 and hailing her as an ambassador for the city of Timmins.

The monument was located on lands purchased by Mark Soucie, the owner of Vicky D’Amours Bakery and the Coffee Warehouse from the CIBC who several years earlier blocked access to the monument to the public to deter illegal drinking and drug injection at the site.

The opening of the patio and the access to the Shania Twain monument has been hailed by customers of Vicky D’Amours Bakery and the Coffee Warehouse as good for the city of Timmins according to owner Mark Soucie.

I thought the costume was worn by her during public appearances in town on her homecoming, not in concert.

The article is wrong. The costume/outfit on display looks like the same one Shania has on in the picture beside it.

This is not gonna happen, because next year during Canada's 150th bithday, Shania will be busy to record her new album. An album sooooo new that the songs written (if there are any) in 2015 will be already old.

The monument shows the date of August 12, 1996. Earlier I found info somewhere that Shania Twain Day was held on August 15, 1996. Did Shania come to town to go through the ceremonies on August 12 and they celebrated Shania Twain Day without her or was the monument prepared beforehand?

There's a rumor going around that Shania will join Keith Urban tomorrow night (July 1) at the Timmins "Stars and Thunder" festival to celebrate Canada Day.
