Mayor Meed Ward’s Weekly Update: July 26-Aug 1, 2021

Mayor's Weekly Public Update

Hello Burlington,

We are already heading into the last week of July and I think this two-dose summer is going a little faster than expected! I know we are all making the most of our newly permitted time with friends and family at backyard barbecues, restaurant patios, and local stores and ice cream shops. It is wonderful to see so many of you out and about in our neighborhoods and parks, and signing up for the city programs that will be kicking off in August now that we’re in stage 3. Are you watching the Olympics? Great to see some medals already coming in for Canada!

Our vaccination numbers continue to increase and I appreciate how diligent our community has been in signing up for their first and second shots and maintaining the good-sense health measures like masks and physical distancing when you’re in indoor environments with people outside of your own household. Keep it up and thank you.

Check out my weekly update here: Mayors Weekly Public Update July 26-Aug 1

I wish all of you a continued happy and healthy summer and hope you are able to make some great memories with the people you love.

~ 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.
