In the coming weeks Council will return to a full fall schedule.
As we approach the mid-term mark, we will be focusing on all the exciting, hard work we have ahead and reflecting on all that we have accomplished to date.
I hope you will join me in having an important conversation as we host the London Community Forum on Racism.
You are invited to the South London Neighbourhood Resource Centre on September 17 for a focused discussion on this issue in our community.
Our diversity makes us stronger, and it is a priority to make our community and inclusive and accepting place for all, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or gender identity. We have come so far, but still have some issues to overcome.
Through this forum we can work through questions like how we can interrupt racism when we see it happening and how we can make London as inclusive as possible.
The day will start with an Indigenous Sunrise Ceremony and we will hear from a panel of those who have shared experiences of racism in our community. This event is a partnership between the London diversity and Race Relations Advisory Committee and the Mayor’s Office.

Thank you to those who came out Victoria Park this past weekend to share in The Tragically Hip show broadcast live from Kingston. It was the concert heard across the nation and an amazing evening to be a part of. Let us continue to celebrate Gord Downie and this group of iconic Canadians.
A few days later, Londoners rallied together once again as our London Knights were presented their Memorial Cup Championship rings. London is truly a hockey city, as was proven by the number of people who lined the parade route. We are all very much looking forward to next season.
