The third annual Airshow London is next weekend!
Airshow London is a not-for-profit event that supports The Children’s Health Foundation. Katie’s Corner will return to this year’s event to send teddy bears into the sky. The 30 bears that are to take flight will report back to children facing health challenges and treatment at our local hospitals.
This event is one the whole family can enjoy. Some of the 2018 performers include the CF-18 demonstration team, Canadian Forces Snowbirds, F-16 Viper demonstration team and much more. You can find more information here.
London officials travelled to Ottawa last week for the Association of Municipalities Ontario’s annual conference where elected officials from around Ontario met with the new Government for the first time.
London’s main priorities at AMO were the regional connectivity of southwest Ontario through high speed rail as well as discussing age friendly strategies, finance and cannabis legalization.
The AMO conference was a great opportunity for London to connect and talk mutual goals with the new government. We are looking forward to a mutually beneficial relationship over the next four years.
Overnight parking restrictions return after Labour Day Weekend. All overnight parking will be prohibited on all streets between 3am-5am. Drivers will need to register their vehicles for overnight parking. You can register here.
London will see the return of many students and welcome those new to the City. Best of luck to everyone with the fall semester.
