Mayor Meed Ward’s Weekly Update: July 19-25, 2021

Mayor's Weekly Public Update

Hello Burlington,

The Province moved Ontario into Step 3 of its safe reopening plan last Friday (July 16), earlier than expected, and that meant more of our favourite businesses opening up and/or expanding their services, as we well as a chance for us to return to more of the activities we have missed, and seeing more of the people we’ve also missed.

I want to thank you all again for continuing to do your part — following the safety and health guidelines in place, coming out in droves to get vaccinated when you’ve been eligible to, and continuing with physical distancing and masks indoors as another layer of protection — these preventative measures and the sacrifices you have all made during the pandemic have helped all us get to where we are now.

In addition, they will help ensure we have a safe and enjoyable summer, and a healthy fall.

My full weekly update for the days ahead can be found here: Mayors Weekly Update July 19-25_2021.

  1. Good morning, I am really enjoying sitting outside at Coffee Culture with friends now that Covid is easing up, not easy conversation though with food delivery trucks parking, backing up etc and garbage trucks always trundling through. Cannot the service trucks arrive very early in the day or late in the evening? Some very big European cities manage to do this, why can’t Burlington, even if just for the warm summer months?

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.
