Update from Mayor Watson - April 25, 2017

“Unfortunately, this is one of those occasional Tuesdays where 5 out of 7 Councillors are out of town on business. Anyone who has attended a meeting can attest to the ineffectual, non-productive atmosphere that situation creates.

This is also a genuine risk due to such difficult communication and a high likelihood that what comes out if a meeting like this is likely to set us back or slow us down trying to sort it all out afterwards.

Spring has spring, and with the appearance of warmer weather comes increased activity outdoors. When you are out enjoying the longer days, remember to take an extra moment to check your surroundings and make sure that you are aware of what is around you. Please, have fun and stay safe.

As the days get longer and the thought of spring is coming into the minds of many, I am reminded of the quote ‘my friends, love is better than anger, hope is better than fear, optimism is better than despair, so let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic and we’ll change the world.’ – Jack Layton
