Candlelight Ceremony in Memory of Our Veterans

It was truly an honour to attend this respectful candlelight ceremony to commemorate our veterans last night. It was also a special privilege to commemorate Stuart Kettles by naming a street in Bay Ward after him.

Another Great Fall Weekend in Bay Ward

This past weekend I was happy to attend a series of fun and exciting events and activities throughout the ward. I was lucky to attend the kickoff of the new Hair Fellas and Cuts for Kids partnership, host my annual Movie in the Park, chat with residents at the Honeywell Homestead Days and Accora Village Fest, and deliver remarks at the Poet's Pathway unveiling. Great to see such an active and vibrant community out and about.
