Newsletter November 25

City Council is truly moving forward issues like poverty and human rights thanks to the work that we were able to accomplish last week.

Council supported a recommendation so that children 12 and under can ride city transit for free. We also supported a budget increase for the London Middlesex Housing Corporation. Both of these initiatives were able to go ahead without increasing the tax levy.

Supporting these initiatives is crucial to bringing Londoners out of poverty and are part of the 112 recommendations in the “London For All” report.

Also last week, City Council voted unanimously to call on the London Police Service to end carding, or street checks, in our community. Thank you to the Diversity, Inclusion and Anti-Oppression Advisory Committee and Council for bringing this issue to Council’s attention.

Further, the federal government announced $15-million in funding to Hanwha L&C Canada Inc., of which Hanwha invested $28.6-million. This will allow the company to double its production capacity, and hire for 85 new, full-time jobs. The countertop maker’s London location will also serve as its North American headquarters.

This demonstrates strong confidence in the manufacturing industry in our city on an international scale. I am so proud to see our municipal, provincial and federal partners working together to support industry growth right here in London.

I would like to extend an invitation to you and your family to join me at the Mayor’s Holiday Open House on Thursday, December 1 happening on the 12th Floor at City Hall. There will be complimentary hot chocolate, festive treats, and storytime for the kids.

In the spirit of the season, please consider bringing a donation for the local food bank.

This is a time to come together and celebrate with your friends, family, and neighbours. I hope to see you there.
