Mayor Meed Ward’s Weekly Update: Jan 10-16, 2022

Mayor Marianne Meed Ward Weekly Update

Mayor Marianne Meed Ward Weekly UpdateGood morning Burlington,

As I learn from more and more of residents’ experiences with COVID-19 and the prevalence of the Omicron variant, I continue to be grateful for how many of you stepped up to get vaccinated and boosted over the past year and protect not only yourself and your families, but also our community and our healthcare resources.

It is reassuring to hear how many people have encountered mild symptoms – or some with no symptoms at all – and seen the vaccines be successful in mitigating severe illness and hospitalization. These continue to be very challenging times and we must focus on the silver linings to keep our spirits lifted and our hope in tact.

I know it is a top priority for every parent to get their children back to school, and my fellow Mayors and I are working on advocacy later today that you will hear more about shortly through this site and my social media channels.

The week ahead is a busy one with council committee meetings and you can check out my full update here: Mayors Weekly Public Update Jan 10-16 2022

Wishing you each a good Monday and a healthy week ahead.

~ Mayor Marianne Meed Ward

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
