Mayor Meed Ward’s Weekly Update: September 13-19, 2021

Mayor's Weekly Public Update

Good Morning Burlington,

September is a great month for community philanthropy and we have no shortage of amazing organizations and events in our city to support many important causes.

This morning I raised the flag for the annual Terry Fox Run in support of cancer research, taking place this coming Sunday, September 19th. The Burlington Humane Society Ruff Ride takes place that same morning to raise funds in support of their mandate to help stray and abandoned animals and find them their forever homes. Also on Sunday, the Appleby Street Festival is back on this year and helps support the Gift of Giving Back and our local food banks.

On September 20th we will raise the flag for the United Way of Halton & Hamilton as they announce their annual fundraising goal, and September 21st is Carpenter Hospice’s Golf Tournament followed by the Hike for Carpenter Hospice on September 25th.

Thanks to all those who organize, participate, and donate to these valued causes in our community!

Your email address will not be published.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.
