Mayor Meed Ward’s Weekly Update: Jan 24-30, 2022

Mayor Marianne Meed Ward Weekly Update

Mayor Marianne Meed Ward Weekly UpdateGood morning Burlington,

This week is the annual ROMA conference – Rural Ontario Municipal Association. It began yesterday and extends through Tuesday. Along with keynotes from thought leaders, the Premier and other Ministers, there are opportunities to meet as delegations with Ministers as well. 

Staff and myself will be meeting with representatives from the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry and the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.

With half of Burlington’s land being rural, and many issues facing our rural residents and business owners, this is an important conference each year and I look forward to the dialogue, learnings and actionable takeaways that will result.

The week ahead in full detail can be found here in my weekly update: Mayors Weekly Public Update Jan 24-30 2022

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.
