Movember has come to an end and now it’s time to celebrate the season.

I’d like to thank all those who grew a moustache in support of men’s health initiatives and those who came to the Holiday Open House at City Hall this week.

Everyone was welcome to attend and the turnout was fantastic. I met with dozens of people who also helped raise money for The Salvation Army and brought in food donations for the London Food Bank. About 75 Syrian newcomers also attended.

It was almost a year ago when the first refugees began to arrive in Canada, and London has since welcomed close to 1,500. We are the eleventh largest city in Canada, and the latest numbers show that we have accepted the seventh most total newcomers, third in the province. It makes me incredibly proud to meet with these new Londoners and hear of how our community has embraced them and helped them start anew.  

This week also marked the end of the NeighbourGood Photo contest. Over a three week period, 493 photos were submitted by 363 community members from 45 different neighbourhoods across London. The winning photos were exceptional snapshots showing what residents love about their neighbourhoods. Our city’s spaces have so much to offer, and I’m pleased that Londoners are able to get out and about to enjoy them.

Finally, we know that our neighbourhoods are made up of incredibly selfless individuals who want London to continue to be a great place to live, work, and play. I encourage you to nominate someone you know for the Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers, which recognizes exceptional achievements by volunteers.

You can fill out the nomination form here.
