Mayor Meed Ward’s Weekly Update: November 8-14, 2021

Mayor's Weekly Public Update

Good Morning Burlington,

The coming week brings with it an opportunity to extend special thanks to our veterans on Remembrance Day, November 11th. Our veteran community – many of whom are of advanced age – has again requested that the public avoid coming to Veteran Square beside City Hall as they perform their annual (and much smaller) event this year. I understand their concern about crowds (even as many of us are vaccinated and outdoor spaces are generally safe) due to their higher risk factors, so let’s honour that request as we pay our respects to them. I am optimistic that 2022 will provide us with an opportunity to gather again like we have in the past, with bigger crowds, the parade and more.

The local Legion Branch 60 will again be doing a live webcast of the event so please watch at their link here.

My weekly update for the week ahead can be found here: Mayors Weekly Public Update Nov 8-14

~ Mayor Marianne Meed Ward

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *

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.
