We are one week away from the largest airshow in Canada taking over the skies of London.
Airshow London returns next week with dozens of aircraft from across North America and around the world ready to be showcased.
I would like to thank all of the many sponsors, organizers and volunteers involved with Airshow London for their hard work in getting this off the ground once again. This event brings thousands of people from across the region to our backyard. It is a thrilling weekend, and I am looking forward to participating in it once again.

Meanwhile, this weekend is Doors Open London, where residents have a chance to see behind the scenes of buildings they may pass by every day. It is a way to celebrate our culture and our history free of charge. Thank you to the London Heritage Council and London Life for making this weekend possible.
Finally, it is critical that Londoners play an active role in their community. That is why, as part of our Strategic Plan, we are committed to engaging and empowering neighbourhoods across the city through the Neighbourhood Decision Making Program.
Starting today, Londoners will be able to submit ideas to enhance their respective neighbourhoods. Submissions will be voted on (on November 18), and the winning idea will get $50,000 to help make it a reality.
We have seen such success with the SPARKS! Neighbourhood Matching Fund that we are expanding it to the Neighbourhood Decision Making Program. This way, Londoners will be able to have a greater say over how money is spent in their community. Over the past seven years, $350,000 has been allocated to fund 87 projects aimed at bringing people together and beautifying neighbourhoods.
