Newsletter September 7

This week I spent a “day in a chair” navigating our city in a wheelchair, gaining a better understanding of the barriers so many face in our community by simply going for lunch or riding the bus.

Working with the Accessibility Advisory Committee to ensure all Londoners have access to everything our city has to offer is a necessity as we move toward an entirely inclusive community.

September 7 marks the 222nd Anniversary of the London Township Treaty, or Treaty Number 6.

In 1796, the treaty was signed by Alexander McKee on behalf of King George III and 13 Chiefs, warriors and people of the Cheppewa Nation, who are the ancestors of the modern-day communities of the Aamjiwnaang First Nation, Caldwell First Nation, Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, Chippewas of Kettle & Stony Point First Nation, and Walpole Island First Nation.

London City Hall displays the flags of those Nations on this day to signify our working relationship and the joint effort to work together for a prosperous and thriving region.

As summer winds down, there’s so much happening in our city.

This weekend marks the beginning of the long stand Western Fair and the return of Airshow London.

Also a most sincere welcome back to all the students attending Western, Huron, Kings, Brescia and Fanshawe College.

Sincerely,
