Mayor Meed Ward’s Weekly Update: October 13-18, 2020

Mayor's Weekly Public Update

Good morning everyone. I hope you all had an enjoyable Thanksgiving weekend and found ways to enjoy the sunshine and some good food. As our local COVID-19 numbers continue to grow, I urge you all to stay vigilant in following the advice of healthcare experts and avoid interactions with those outside your household when not necessary (school, work, groceries, etc.) for the time being, and reach out to everyone you know who is living on their own to offer friendship and conversation by phone/text/email/facetime/lettermail as we all do our best to connect in new (and old) ways and maintain our mental well-being.

Please find my weekly update here, where you can read about my plans for the week ahead (lots of interesting Zoom meetings on tap) along with highlights and links from meetings and media engagements last week: Mayors Weekly Public Update October 13-18 2020

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.
