Mayor Meed Ward’s Weekly Update: November 22-28, 2021

Mayor's Weekly Public Update

Good Morning Burlington,

Great news last week that vaccines are now approved for children ages 5-11. We should know more about the rollout in the coming days from both the Province and Halton Region and I will share that as soon as I hear. You can learn more in this short video from our local Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Hamidah Meghani.

If you have time on your lunch this Thursday from 12:30-1:30 p.m., my Women of Burlington November lunch panel welcomes guests Laurie Hepburn of Halton Women’s Place, Chondrena Vieira-Martin of Thrive Counselling and Silvia Samsa of SAVIS of Halton. We will be discussing the important issue of domestic violence and the supports available in our community along with other topics that will undoubtedly focus on empowerment and strength. If you would like to join us virtually (no need to be on-screen), just rsvp at mayor@burlington.ca for details of how to log in and watch!

A busy week of city and regional business ahead – my update for the week can be found here: Mayors Weekly Public Update Nov 22-28

Wishing you all a good Monday!

~ 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.
