Mayor Meed Ward’s Weekly Update: June 14-20, 2021

Mayor Marianne Meed Ward Weekly Update

Hello Burlington,

New cases of COVID-19 continue to decrease at a substantial rate, and as you can see from the chart below, we are seeing the results of all the sacrifices we have made in the past couple of months and the benefits of growing vaccination rates. 

I hope you were able to enjoy some time on a local patio this weekend, as I did, or pop into your favourite shop in person for a change, or gather outside with a small group of your friends. It was wonderful to see some familiar faces and enjoy the social interaction. 

New COVID cases in Halton, Ontario

Read my detailed update and schedule for the week ahead here: Mayors Weekly Public Update June 14-20

And don’t forget that as of today, adults who received their first dose of the vaccine prior to May 10th, including those whose first dose was Astra Zeneca, can now reschedule their second appointment to an earlier date via the Halton Regional website! You can select any location within Halton from the drop-down menu so look around to see which locations have dates that best suit you.

Have a great week and remember to be kind to one another and keep being careful and safe in your actions.

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.


A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful. Got an idea or comment you want to share privately? Please, get in touch:
