Message from the Mayor – COVID-19

I am going to start this message with a quote from my 4 year old grandson when we found ourselves in a dangerous situation, “grandma is this a drill?”  Well, the time for a drill is past and this is real.  The government regulations are in and the science is clear. The choice is ours to how well we weather this crisis.  Make no mistake it is a crisis.  I participated in a conference call with MP Maryam Monsef and several community leaders on Sunday and Councillor Lambshead stated that we can’t expect the federal or provincial gov’t to solve this, the municipality must take a lead also.

I would go further and say the responsibility is now ours .  We have been lucky so far and that is because it hasn’t been introduced here yet.  With many people coming back from vacation etc. and not properly isolating immediately. Our risk goes up.  Once this gets into the community, it will be much harder to gain some control.  People were observed this weekend returning from holidays, going shopping, etc., before going into isolation.  If they are infected that is too late.

I am asked all the time, if I am worried.  Of course I am, and if we are not all worried, we won’t take the necessary precautions.  This is not easy but, it will pay off in the months ahead.  Wash your hands often, stay 6 feet away from others, and practice social isolation as much as possible.

The Municipal office is closed to the public but is conducting necessary business and answering the phones.  Unpaid property taxes will not incur interest/penalty on April 1st, 2020.

I am only a phone call away and please stay safe.

Mayor Janet Clarkson
